The Grownup

Short Story. Winner of the The Edgar Allan Poe Award 2015

A young woman is making a living faking it as a cut-price psychic (with some illegal soft-core sex work on the side). She makes a decent wage mostly by telling people what they want to hear. But then she meets Susan Burke.

Susan moved to the city one year ago with her husband and 15-year-old stepson Miles. They live in a Victorian house called Carterhook Manor. Susan has become convinced that some malevolent spirit is inhabiting their home. The young woman doesn´t believe in exorcism or the supernatural. However when she enters the house for the first time, she begins to feel it too, as if the very house is watching her, waiting, biding its time . . .

The Grownup, which originally appeared as ´What Do You Do?´ in George R. R. Martin´s Rogues anthology, proves once again that Gillian Flynn is one of the world´s most original and skilled voices in fiction.

Gone Girl was a massive No.1 bestseller, with over 10 million sales worldwide, and was made into a critically-acclaimed, smash-hit film by David Fincher, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. The screenplay was written by Gillian Flynn and was nominated for a Golden Globe and a Bafta. ´The Grownup´ won the Edgar Award for Best Short Story in 2015.
