Irish columnist Megan Nolan plumbs the depths of lovesick obsession and desire in her debut novel, Acts of Desperation. In this harrowing yet riveting tale of a woman ravaged by a love affair gone south, there’s little romance to be found, but plenty of emotion. Examining the entirely lopsided and highly toxic power dynamics between the nameless narrator and her older, very cold lover Ciaran, Nolan challenges readers to consider just how far they would go for what they consider love.
