Description

The day Pauline sees Ramona’s mug shot in the paper, she knows she’s going to be called upon to relive the darkest period of her life. Charged with murder, Ramona and her husband, Jim, have also been accused of sexually abusing female victims for years in their home. And when the police discover a stash of scripts for disturbing plays performed years earlier by Pauline, Ramona, and Jim, Pauline becomes a key witness in the trial.

Tell Everything follows Pauline as she prepares for her testimony, and in the process reawakens memories that she has buried since she was a teenager. But the most difficult challenge she faces is keeping her relationship with her partner, Alex, in tact as he learns for the first time what terrible secrets lurk in her past. Tell Everything is a gripping, agonizingly vivid work from a gifted author who is not afraid to take her reader into the darkest regions of the human soul.

Editorial Reviews

Tell Everything tells us everything - in selected, suspenseful, breathless segments - that makes going to work, falling asleep or getting off the subway at the right stop nearly impossible Tell Everything is a tremendous accomplishment from a writer with a gift for complex character development, agonizing suspense and the occasional lyrical gem of a sentence.

— Zoe Whittall

Hamilton writer Sally Cooper's second novel ... is courageous.

— National Post

It is lyrical, intimate and horrifying ... Cooper slowly peels back layers in search of the real lives and motivations behind the media maelstrom of sensational trial ... Cooper has achieved an impressive and delicate balance.

— Claire Cameron

... while unsettling, shows the powers of an emerging writer with uncanny skills in crafting dialogue, plot and prose.

— Andrew Armitage

The magnetic writing drew me to the story ... A commanding work that is both challenging and satisfying.

— Don Graves

Deeply Intense, In a Way

I liked it,
I thought it was dark and interesting, but I also never fully got connected to the story, like I just kept waiting to be really involved.
It was unusual and dark.
Brings up questions in the mind about what is sexual desire, sexual misconducted and love.
