Description
"Overwhelmed by the huge success of her latest novel, exhausted and suffering from a crippling inability to write, Dalphine meets L. L. embodies everything Delphine has always secretly admired: she is a glittering image of feminine sophistication and spontaneity and she has an uncanny knack for always saying the right thing. Unusually intuitive, L. senses Delphine's vulnerability and slowly but deliberately carves herself a niche in the writer's life. However, as L. makes herself indispensable to Delphine, the intensity of this unexpected friendship manifests itself in increasingly sinister ways. As their lives become more and more entwined, L. threatens Delphine's identity, both as a writer and as an individual." -- Jacket.
