We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver
From the time of his birth, Kevin Khatchadourian seems different, refusing to bond with his loving parents, who deny all signs that something is wrong until the advent of their sweet-tempered second child renders the sibling contrast too great. As Kevin grows into a creepily vicious adolescent, the reader’s sense of impending danger is heightened. Is there such a thing as a “bad seed” or are Kevin’s parents to blame? Published a decade ago, We Need to Talk About Kevin remains one of the best novelistic explorations of the psychopathic child.
