Everyone does bad things when no one is watching, and no one captures that more aptly than Anna Snoekstra. Her thrillers are known for being intense, unique, and utterly creepy, able to paint portraits of human desperation with terrifying accuracy (and the occasional edge of freaky dolls). In her twisted third novel, The Spite Game, Snoekstra further unnerves readers, telling the story of a girl bullied in high school whose favorite game is exacting sweet, vicious revenge. Join us in Brooklyn as Anna discusses her new book with fellow writer Tori Telfer, known for her nonfiction book Lady Killers.
