From the Publisher
Editors Note In Close Your Eyes, the author of the bestselling How to Be Lost spins another mesmerizing tale of buried family secrets.For most of her life, Lauren Mahdian has been certain of two things: that her mother is dead, and that her father is a murderer.Before the horrific tragedy, Lauren led a sheltered life in a wealthy corner of America, in a town outside Manhattan on the banks of Long Island Sound, a haven of luxurious homes, manicured lawns, and seemingly perfect families. Here Lauren and her older brother, Alex, thought they were safe.But one morning, six-year-old Lauren and eight-year-old Alex awoke after a night spent in their tree house to discover their mother’s body and their beloved father arrested for the murder.Years later, Lauren is surrounded by uncertainty. Her one constant is Alex, always her protector, still trying to understand the unraveling of his idyllic childhood. But Lauren feels even more alone when Alex reveals that he’s been in contact over the years with their imprisoned father—and that he believes he and his sister have yet to learn the full story of their mother’s death.Then Alex disappears. As Lauren is forced to peek under the floorboards of her carefully constructed memories, she comes to question the version of her history that she has clung to so fiercely. Lauren’s search for the truth about what happened on that fateful night so many years ago is a riveting tale that will keep readers feverishly turning pages.
Editors Note 1 Struggling for closure years after her mother is murdered by her father, Lauren Mahdian analyzes her own carefully constructed memories only to realize the role of her own denial, a process that illuminates the long-lasting impact of split-second choices. 30,000 first printing.
