On Friday, The Guardian posted a piece by author Kathleen Hale, a well-connected young author who once became so obsessed with the writer of a one-star review of her novel on Goodreads that she stalked her, only to find that the critic was using a fake name and identity. Can you pick a side yet? I’m on Team Nobody.
I highly suggest reading Kathleen Hale’s article first. Does the Guardian look positively on stalking? Would her stalking escalate over time? I don’t think it’s too farfetched that she could hurt someone. All I can think about is the show Stalker and I am fucking creeped out by this woman.
She’s a lot like her main character in No One Else Can Have You, but this isn’t a fictional small-town mystery with an annoyingly precocious teen sleuth.
