The Little Friend
The hugely anticipated new novel by the author ofThe Secret
History—a best-seller nationwide and around the world, and one
of the most astonishing debuts in recent times—The Little
Friendis even more transfixing and resonant.
In a small Mississippi town, Harriet Cleve Dusfresnes grows up
in the shadow of her brother, who—when she was only a baby—was
found hanging dead from a black-tupelo tree in their yard. His
killer was never identified, nor has his family, in the years
since, recovered from the tragedy.
For Harriet, who has grown up largely unsupervised, in a world
of her own imagination, her brother is a link to a glorious past
she has only heard stories about or glimpsed in photograph albums.
Fiercely determined, precocious far beyond her twelve years, and
steeped in the adventurous literature of Stevenson, Kipling, and
Conan Doyle, she resolves, one summer, to solve the murder and
exact her revenge. Harriet’s sole ally in this quest, her friend
Hely, is devoted to her, but what they soon encounter has nothing
to do with child’s play: it is dark, adult, and all too
A revelation of familial longing and sorrow,The Little
Friendexplores crime and punishment, as well as the hidden
complications and consequences that hinder the pursuit of truth and
justice. A novel of breathtaking ambition and power, it is rich in
moral paradox, insights into human frailty, and storytelling
