Marriage can be a real killer. One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn, takes that statement to its darkest place in her most recent novel, Gone Girl, about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. As The Washington Post proclaimed, her work “draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction.”

Q&A moderated by Maria Semple.

In addition to Gone Girl, Flynn has written Sharp Objects (2007) and Dark Places (2010). A former movie and TV critic, Flynn has “cement[ed] her place among that elite group of mystery/thriller writers who unfailingly deliver the goods…” (Library Journal).
