Additional Information

A page-turning modern gothic about a marriage and road trip gone hauntingly awry
A New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice
“Pittard deserves the attention of anyone in search of today’s best fiction.” — Washington Post

“Revelatory.” — The New Yorker
“[Listen to Me] gripped me completely and even gave me nightmares, which is high praise in my book.” — Chicago Tribune

Mark and Maggie’s annual drive east to visit family has gotten off to a rocky start. By the time they’re on the road, it’s late, a storm is brewing, and they are no longer speaking to each other. Adding to the stress, Maggie—recently mugged at gunpoint—is lately not herself, and Mark is at a loss about what to make of the stranger he calls his wife. When the couple is forced to stop for the night at a remote inn completely without power, Maggie’s paranoia reaches an all-time and terrifying high. But as Mark finds himself threatened in a dark parking lot, it’s Maggie who takes control. 

“Pittard proves herself a master of ordinary suspense.” — New York Times

Listen to Me elides so many genres that it’s Houdini-like, bursting through constraints. It moves between its two characters’ inner lives as effortlessly as an Olympic swimmer strokes through water.Ann Beattie, Paris Review blog
“A psychologically complex, addictive, and quick-moving read. I didn’t want it to end!” — M.O. Walsh, author of New York Times best-selling novel My Sunshine Away

I absolutely loved this book, and I can and then I can't explain why. It made me uneasy and thoughtful and creeped out and apprehensive... But nothing was happening. I kept wondering how I could be so affected by a book in which.. again, nothing happens. At least until near the end... And here's a warning ... you may kind of expect what happens, but you still won't like it. It is sad. Very sad. Yet, I absolutely loved this book. I sat and held it in my lap when I was done and tried to figure out why it so affected me. I've got no good answer. I didn't hate Mark like other reviewers did and I did like Maggie but didn't love her. I was on edge for most of the book but didn't realize how involved I was until it was over. I know others disagree, but I thought this was a very good book.
“It was a matter of luck, life was. You could beg all you wanted for protection, you could pray or not pray to a god or to a devil, but what it all came down to was a simple game of chance.”

This taut little domestic novel about a middle-aged couple on a road trip is so ominous and disquieting that it almost reads like a horror story or a psychological thriller.

Tensions are especially high between Maggie and Mark as they set out for his parent’s house several states away. Months after being violently mugged, Maggie struggles with PTSD and continues to descend into the depths of paranoia and anxiety. Meanwhile, Mark secretly perceives this as weakness, and as he begins losing respect for his wife, finds himself on the cusp of having an affair.

Unfortunately, their road trip is doomed from the start, and it only worsens as a dangerous storm approaches and Maggie and Mark subsequently find themselves lost in rural West Virginia... Read more
There are so many things that I want to say about the novel LISTEN TO ME by Hannah Pittard. First, it is about marriage or really any relationship and how communication can go awry but also how two people can really know each other. It is about how when something bad happens, it can tear these two people apart or it can draw them closer together. In the case of the couple in this book, you will need to read it to find out what happens. No spoilers. And, this book takes the reader on a real journey, but also on an emotional one as well in which we examine how two people keep their thoughts to themselves but they come to discover many things – about themselves and each other. Go on a ride with Mark and Maggie and find out what happens along the way on their road trip.

​It also reaffirmed my fear of night driving in the rain.

Listen to them. It’s worth it.
