If you can't trust your therapist, who can you trust?
“You are not your
You are not your past or your future.
You are only your body and this moment right now.”
This is the mantra that therapist Roberta Klein teaches her clients. It is supposed to be reassuring. It is supposed to centre them and keep them in the present. But what if it means something else?
Sam thinks it might. He can’t work out why Roberta is so against his relationship with his new girlfriend Nina. And his therapy sessions are becoming increasingly uncomfortable. It’s like Roberta needs him somehow. Shouldn’t it be the other way around?
And that’s when he begins to notice her patients. He’s never met any of them before, but now they are turning up everywhere.
On the streets. Living in his apartment block. In his bedroom at night.
And some of them are showing up dead.
You Are Not You is a disturbing psychological thriller in the paranoid conspiracy tradition of Ira Levin (Rosemary’s Baby, The Stepford Wives) with echoes of the surreal horror of David Lynch and the weirdness of Haruki Murakami. It is an intense, hallucinogenic read that will get inside your head and make you question what is real and who you can believe.
"I hope Rosenberg turns this into a series." - Amazon Review
"Tremendously creepy psychological thriller that kept this reader guessing until the final page. It's a wonderfully cinematic work with hat-tips to Hitchcock and Lynch as the tension is ratcheted up throughout creating an eerily claustrophobic sense of helplessness." - Amazon UK Review
"This psychological tale exposes us to a complex inner world which we can all recognise but which few of us would comfortably wish to explore in ourselves." - Amazon UK Review
"the author's skill in keeping the reader on edge - and, in fact, steadily increasing the sense of discomfort, whilst keeping me turning the pages - was great" Amazon UK Review
"A chest-tightening metaphor for the loneliness, grief and depression that may be found behind the front door of any home anywhere. A really good first novel with a palpable sense of unease." Goodreads Review (#3 top reviewer)
