      About The Book

      From the author of God’s Snake (“Passionate… a wonderful book” — Alice Munro), and Fear (“Remarkable, spare, powerful” — Grace Paley), a stunning novel, her first in seven years, that shines a light on what it means to be beautiful, and to be possessed — by oneself, and by others.

      The setting is New York City in the 1970s — a time and place of creativity, licentiousness, rebellion — and unforeseen perils. At its center is Beatrice: twenty-five, mesmerizingly lovely and intelligent, at once conventional and different from everyone else, married to Ned, a talented but volatile painter whose obsession with her has turned to hatred.

      Beatrice is desired by everyone around her: by Faye, her seductive, bawdy childhood friend; by Cyril, a lonely, charismatic Vietnam veteran; by Colin, an aspiring musician; by Simon, a cynical older man she meets at a bar; by Chris, a young heroin addict. And then there is Perkins, the oddly threatening man next door. A sliver of light from his apartment shines in on Beatrice, a light that in her darkest hours reminds her she is not alone.

      Unfolding with the powerful compression of a myth, Before offers a daring portrait of three months in the life of a young woman fighting for her identity — and her survival. It is a combustible cocktail of Eros, longing, and menace, one that captures a dizzying time in America.
