As in her mesmerizing debut, Nobody Is Ever Missing, Lacey traces the contours of a contemporary female trauma.

The protagonist of The Answers, a young woman with no money and a mysterious, crippling pain disorder, finds herself caught up in a wealthy man’s odd girlfriend-for-pay scheme in order to pay for her experimental treatments.
