Tony and Susan
W hen Susan Morrow isn't worrying, "she worries lest she's forgotten what she's worrying about". Meanwhile, she "runs the house, pays the bills, cleans and cooks, takes care of the kids". Her husband Arnold is a heart surgeon. Her ex-husband Edward — known to Arnold as "that old bastard" — has become a writer. His need to write, we learn immediately, was the "chief cause of trouble" in the marriage of Edward and Susan. Twenty years after the divorce — a period during which Susan has had nothing from Edward but a Christmas card signed by his second wife — she receives a letter asking her to read his first novel, Nocturnal Animals. On one hand she's intrigued, interpreting the gesture as "reconciling and flattering"; on the other, she's irritated because it threatens "the peace she has made with her past".
Fifteen years ago, Susan Morrow left her first husband, Edward Sheffield. One day, out of the blue, she receives a parcel containing the manuscript of Edward's first novel and is drawn into the life of his fictional character, Tony Hastings. Dazzling and terrifying, Tony and Susan.
