9780099572312: Give Me Everything You Have

A true story of obsessive love turning to obsessive hate, "Give Me Everything You Have" chronicles the author's strange and harrowing ordeal at the hands of a former student, a self-styled 'verbal terrorist', who began trying, in her words, to 'ruin him'. Hate-mail - much of it violently anti-Semitic - online postings and public accusations of theft and sexual misconduct, have been her weapons of choice, and, as with more conventional terrorist weapons, have proved remarkably difficult to combat. James Lasdun's account, while terrifying, is told with compassion and humour, and brilliantly succeeds in turning a highly personal story into a profound meditation on subjects as varied as madness, race, Middle-Eastern politics, and the meaning of honour and reputation in the internet age.

About the Author:

James Lasdun was born in London and now lives in upstate New York. He has published two novels as well as several collections of short stories and poetry. His work has been adapted for film by Bernardo Bertolucci in Besieged and for the Sundance award-winning Sunday. He has been long-listed for the Booker Prize, shortlisted for the LA Times, T.S. Eliot and Forward prizes in poetry, and was the winner of the inaugural UK/BBC Short Story Prize. His non-fiction has been published in Harpers, Granta and the London Review of Books.

From Booklist:

This memoir-as-cautionary-tale starts innocently enough in 2003 with established novelist and poet Lasdun (Seven Lies, 2005) teaching a fiction workshop at a New York City college. His students include an unassuming though strikingly talented Iranian woman in her thirties. Slowly, even as teacher and student warm to one another over a novel she has begun to write, their relationship begins to unspool, the student pressing ever harder for a romantic relationship, while the happily married professor, though flattered by the advances, demurs with equal force. If her e-mails tell the age-old story of unrequited love, devolving from early girlish innocence (“I’m sorry if I got screwy on you. Please laugh.”) to embitterment (“I also believe you are on medication instead of dealing with why you and most Jewish people are sadistic”), they’re married to a technology that can spread a lie worldwide in a nanosecond, while offering little cover for anyone so defamed. Lasdun delivers a thoughtful account of what went horribly wrong. --Alan Moores
