Abrams's debut novel is a revealing look inside the mind of a woman who enjoys being beaten, shamed and dominated by her lover. As her bedroom escapades become increasingly brutal, she struggles to make sense of her need for sexual violence, her relationship with her mother, and her guilt over the death of her infant brother.
