Product Details


“This is what a debut novel should be. Entertaining. Brilliant. Sharp. Incisive. Man’s Best Friend is a tantalizing twist on the rags-to-riches narrative. In El, Alana B Lytle crafts an original caustic heroine whose own personal game of have’s and have-not’s exposes the dark underbelly of high society, pushing us to question the very nature of luxury—and how far we’d be willing to go to get it.  Alana B. Lytle is an author we’ll be reading for years to come.” –Stephen Chbosky, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Imaginary Friend

“[Lytle] is deft at creating a tense atmosphere—complete with suspicious characters, sinister motivations, disturbing events, and an off-kilter narrator—that will keep readers turning the pages.” Kirkus Reviews

Man’s Best Friend is a discomfiting, elegant slow-burn that’s deliciously feral. It’s a wild ride to watch the novel’s 20-something protagonist, El, find herself in the most unlikely of places. Fans of fiction featuring morally dubious characters, fractious female relationships, and unsettling love interests will love this darkly beautiful debut from Alana B. Lytle.” –Chelsea G. Summers, author of A Certain Hunger

“Alana Biden Lytle has written a pulse-pounding novel that simmers with growing dread. A juicy indictment of the allure of wealth, power, and privilege.” –Caitlin Barasch, author of A Novel Obsession

“[A] thrilling slow burn sprinkled with bewildering oddities that readers won’t quite be able to put their fingers on until the end…. This is a gripping novel that will leave readers questioning their own moral compass.” Booklist

“Lytle, who has written for Netflix and Peacock, uses her screenwriting skills to map out a debut novel that could double as a television series…. It will appeal to readers who enjoyed Emma Cline’s The Guest.” Library Journal
