After a college party, two boys drive a girl home: drunk and passed out in the back seat. Rumours spread about what they did to her, but later they'll tell the police a different version of events. Alice will never remember what truly happened. Her fracture runs deep, hidden beneath cleverness and wry humour. Nick - a sensitive, misguided boy who stood by - will never forget. That's just the beginning of this extraordinary journey into memory, fear and self-portrayal. Through university applications, a terrifying abusive relationship, a fateful reckoning with addiction and a final mind-bending twist, Alice and Nick will take on different roles to each other - some real, some invented - until finally, brought face to face once again, the secret of that night is revealed. Startlingly relevant and enthralling in its brilliance, True Story is by turns a campus novel, psychological thriller, horror story and crime noir, each narrative frame stripping away the fictions we tell about women, men and the very nature of truth. It introduces Kate Reed Petty as a provocative new voice in contemporary fiction.… (més)

Oooooooof. There is no review that will do this book justice. There are 4 months left in 2021 but I'm pretty confident this will make my top 5 books of the year. I'm so beyond impressed that it is the author's debut novel like wtf; it is incredibly well-written, creative, masterful pacing, and such a nuanced complex take on rape culture. It starts off with the typical narrative of sexual assault rumour involving athletes of a high school, and then it takes us through different formats of storytelling and POVs that all accumulated into the big reveal. I had goosebumps at the end. Trigger warning for an animal death; it was horrendous but necessary for the story. If you are going to read one book this year, read this. ( )

This is a book that, once I got into it, I could not put it down. It is yet another book about writing and storytelling, but I find that this subject always seems fresh to me, and here the subject is telling your own story--how do you do that when you aren't even sure what your story is? It uses the tropes of horror to good effect, resulting in a kind of "found footage" novel. I also thought the insights into both alcoholism and abuse were particularly sharp. Different and dark, another winner from the Shirley Jackson Award shortlist. ( )

Weird writing style. I don't understand the switch to 2nd person narrative for some parts of this. It definitely took me out of the story, which was itself disjointed and hard to follow anyway. It wasn't terrible but I wouldn't recommend it either.

Debut novel by a writer known for short fiction, it has been acclaimed as "singular and daring". It tells the story of a woman finding her voice in the wake of trauma. It tells a powerful story, but I'm not a fan of this storytelling. I often felt like I was reading a series of shorts from a creative writing class only loosely interconnected. ( )
