A New York Times Bestselling Author

Set in the early 1970s against the specter of the Manson girls, this is the story of a runaway teenager’s disappearance and her sister’s quest to discover the truth. With gorgeous prose and indelible characters, Leavitt examines the distance between seduction and love, loyalty and duty, and what happens when you’re responsible for things you can’t fix.


Customer Reviews

“Cruel Beautiful World hits the sweet-spot between popular and literaryfiction with finely honed writing, complexity of character motives, andenough guilt and secrecy to sustain the page-turning suspense.”

— New York Journal of Books
