For fans of true crime docuseries a la Serial and The Jinx, The Anatomy of Desire is a modern tale of crime and punishment exploring unbridled ambition, passion, and the dark side of the American Dream Claire Griffith seems to have it all, a thriving career, a gorgeous, successfu...l boyfriend, a glamorous circle of friends. She always knew she was destined for more than the life her deeply conservative parents preached to her. Arriving in Los Angeles as a flat broke teenager, she has risen to become a popular fitness coach and social media influencer. Having rebranded herself as Cleo Ray, she stands on the threshold of achieving her most cherished dreams. One summer day, Cleo and a young woman named Beck Alden set off in a canoe on a quiet, picture-perfect mountain lake. An hour later, Beck is found dead in the water, her face cut and bruised, and Cleo is missing. Authorities suspect foul play and news about Cleo's involvement goes viral. Who was Beck and what was the nature of her and Cleo's relationship? Was Beck an infatuated follower who took things too far? If Cleo is innocent, why did she run? Was it an accident? Or was it murder? As evidence of Cleo's secret life surfaces, the world begins to see just how hard she strived to get to the top-- and how fast and far the fall is from celebrity to infamy. L. R. Dorn's reimagining of Theodore Dreiser's novel, told in the form of a true crime docuseries a la Serial and The Jinx--with characters speaking through the transcripts of recorded interviews--The Anatomy of Desire exposes the ambition, sexual passion, and dark side of success that readers will find as achingly poignant as they did a century ago.
