Now a Major Motion Picture Starring Scarlett Johansson

 

"A wonderful book - painful, lyrical, frightening, brilliant . . . I couldn't put it down." -- Kate Atkinson

 

"The fantastic is so nicely played against the day-to-day that one feels the strangeness of both . . . A remarkable novel." " The New York Times

 

"Alternately gorgeous and terrifying, lyrical and brutal, Under the Skin compels and teases . . . Satisfying and successful." -- Newsday

 

In this haunting, entrancing novel, Michel Faber introduces us to Isserley, a female driver who cruises the Scottish Highlands picking up hitchhikers. Scarred and awkward, yet strangely erotic and threatening, she listens to her hitchhikers as they open up to her, revealing clues about who might miss them if they should disappear. Under the Skin takes us on a heart-thumping ride through dangerous territory -- our own moral instincts and the boundaries of compassion.
