    Love Me Back: A Novel (Merritt Tierce)

    Rate this media item:


    • From "5 Under 35" honoree and Rona Jaffe Award-winner comes an urgent, intensely visceral debut novel about a young waitress whose downward spiral is narrated in electric prose

      Marie, a young single mother, lands a job at an upscale Dallas steakhouse. She is preternaturally attuned to the appetites of her patrons, but quickly learns to hide her private struggle behind an easy smile and a crisp white apron. In a world of long hours and late nights, where everything runs on a currency of favors, cash and cachet, Marie gives in to brutally self-destructive impulses. She loses herself in a tangle of bodies and the kind of coke that 'napalms your emotional synapses.' But obliteration—not pleasure—is her goal. Pulsing with fierce, almost feral energy, Love Me Back is an unapologetic portrait of a woman cutting a precarious path through early adulthood. In the words of Ben Fountain, author of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, "Tierce roams like an avenging angel across the landscape of twenty-first century American decadence, and the truths she writes achieve a state of near-sacred subversion."

      Brief and very mild self-harm reference before a scene where the protagonist is in a consignment store with her husband's family.

      She must have had urges. Maybe she did and then felt really bad or cut herself.

      I'm torn as I really want to confront a friend and hope to convince them to stop SH but it would be extremely selfish and hypocritical as I also self harm because I love it. I'm confused someone help me.

      i dont know how to say. i used to enjoy the attention at school but now not anymore. i feel like hiding all the time.
      i hate when my friends taking pictures of me or us, i just feels like invicible is better.
      i used to talk a lot but now i dont even talk to people. i talk to them but never look at them in the eyes..
      i want my old life back.
      i terminated/deactivated/deleted most of my social account. i just, dont feel like it and i really hate the attention.
      or maybe im afraid of people finding out about me.
      mean me is the story behind my smile :')

      The worse I'm feel before I harm myself, the less the self-harm hurts. Yet, I remember always feeling some amount of pain. On a scale of 1-10, it's more like a 6 for me.
