Publisher's Summary

Two American ex-pats obsessed with the Amanda Knox trial find themselves at the nexus of murder and celebrity in glittering late-aughts Berlin in this “hugely entertaining” (The New York Times) debut with a wicked sense of humor.  

“Darkly funny, psychologically rich and utterly addictive... [a] harrowing tale of twisty female friendships, slippery identity and furtive secrets.” —Megan Abbott, best-selling author of The Turnout

Hoping to escape the pain of the recent murder of her best friend, art student Zoe Beech finds herself studying abroad in the bohemian capital of Europe—Berlin. Rudderless, Zoe relies on the arrangements of fellow exchange student Hailey Mader, who idolizes Warhol and Britney Spears and wants nothing more than to be an art star. 

When Hailey stumbles on a posting for a high-ceilinged, prewar sublet by well-known thriller writer Beatrice Becks, the girls snap it up. They soon spend their nights twisting through Berlin’s club scene and their days hungover. But are they being watched? Convinced that Beatrice intends to use their lives as inspiration for her next novel, Hailey vows to craft main-character-worthy personas. They begin hosting a decadent weekly nightclub in the apartment, finally gaining the notoriety they’ve been craving. Everyone wants an invitation to “Beatrice’s.” As the year unravels and events spiral out of control, they begin to wonder whose story they are living—and how it will end.

Other People’s Clothes brilliantly illuminates the sometimes dangerous intensity of female friendships, as well as offering an unforgettable window into millennial life and the lengths people will go to in order to eradicate emotional pain.

Critic Reviews

"Other People's Clothes feels like reading a thriller by your most acerbic friend - the friend you're not sure you trust but who tells the best jokes and who has the best hair. The tingle of acid is sweetened by a loving look at the hungers that run through young women." (Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, author of Harmless Like You and Starling Days

"Full of delicious layers...I felt drunk reading it." (Emma Jane Unsworth, author of Grown Ups)

Every night you miss in Berlin

Hard to put down, a lil psychological thriller, a lil murder mystery, a lot of drugs and parties, all mixed in with Berlin in 2008. It also deals with mental health and eating disorders.

None of the characters are very likable, lots of paranoia, toxic friendships, elitists art schools, and bright and centre, there is flashy bold Berlin. I also thought it has very long chapters.

A rec nonetheless

Excellent writing

I have listened to many audio books and never left a review, although I’ve been dazzled by many novels. This one is so interesting. The story is a pop culture psych thriller which sounds cheap and cheesy. But the writing is anything but. The author is so imaginative with the narrative that it’s a story that tickles all your senses. Will be looking for more from this author.

No suspension of disbelief At All

While well written in terms of prose, an ugly story of totally unlikeable characters, contrived plot, and boring plot. I kept up to the bitter end. Don’t waste time and money here.
