Caroline Kepnes is from Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Her first novel YOU was translated into 19 languages and shortlisted for a CWA New Blood Award. Her second novel HIDDEN BODIES is a sequel that Booklist describes as 'the love child of Holden Caulfield and Patrick Bateman'. Caroline earned a BA in American Civilization at Brown University and worked as a pop culture journalist on Entertainment Weekly and a TV writer on 7th Heaven. She now writes full-time and lives in Los Angeles. A 10 episode TV series based on YOU will premiere on Lifetime Network in 2018.
Readers of Kepnes’ 2014 brilliant, hipster-thriller debut, You, will be familiar with NYC book store manager Joe, a disconcertingly hot stalker and serial killer. Now Joe’s back, taking his misanthropic ways to LA, where he meets a selection of fakes and fame-seekers. Like before, the story is told entirely from Joe’s extremely persuasive point of view, a device that leaves you massively conflicted.

Delicious and insane as its predecessor....The plot may be twisty and scintillating, but its Kepnes' wit and style that keep you coming back.
– Lena Dunham
YOU is superb. So funny, apart from anything else, and properly clever. It is: different, hot.
– Sophie Hannah, New York Times bestselling author of The Monogram Murders and The Other Woman's House
You will need this book. Caroline Kepnes just became my new favorite writer.

I can’t remember the last time I felt so guilty for enjoying a book so much

There’s something deeply insidious about the storytelling of Caroline Kepnes. As satire of a self-absorbed society, Kepnes hits the mark, cuts deep, and twists the knife.
– Entertainment Weekly
So brilliant, we reckon it’s invented its own genre: hipster thriller, anyone?
