American novelist Kathryn Harrison's highly unsettling The Kiss is an account of her infatuation and affair with her long-lost father. Beautifully told, with a lightness and economy of language, this bitter, distressing story reveals a family steeped in repression and guilt, easy prey to a man whose emotional needs were all-consuming. As secrets go, they don't get much more devastating than this. Review by ROSEMARY GORING, literary editor of Scotland on Sunday. (Kirkus UK)

"One of the most startling books you are ever likely to read."
GILL HORNBY, 'Observer'

Heart breaking and extraordinary, Kathryn Harrison's beautifully written memoir bears witness to the years of her life in which the family bonds of love and loyalty are irrevocably broken by a dark, disturbing passion.

"I couldn't stop reading this. I'll never stop remembering it."
MARY KARR, author of 'The Liar's Club'

"Eerily beautiful prose, making exposure and self-viscerating confession into an art form."
NICCI GERRARD, 'Observer'

"Remarkable for its candour, but also for its elegance, its sense of morality and its generosity of spirit."
ELIZA CHARLTON, 'Sunday Telegraph'

"Harrison writes like an angel."
PENNY PERRICK, 'The Times'
