About the Book

“Mayer lays bare the terrible destiny of a society obsessed with social media stalking and celebrity relationships.” —Julia Heaberlin, bestselling author of We Are All the Same in the Dark

In this raucous psychological thriller, a disillusioned millennial joins a cliquey fan club, only to discover that the group is bound together by something darker than devotion

Day after day our narrator searches for meaning beyond her vacuous job at a women's lifestyle website—entering text into a computer system while she watches their beauty editor unwrap box after box of perfectly packaged bits of happiness. Then, one night at a dive bar, she hears a message in the newest single by international pop star Adriana Argento, and she is struck. Soon she loses herself to the online fandom, a community whose members feverishly track Adriana's every move.

When a colleague notices her obsession, she’s invited to join an enigmatic group of adult Adriana superfans who call themselves the Ivies and worship her music in witchy candlelit listening parties. As the narrator becomes more entrenched in the group, she gets closer to uncovering the sinister secrets that bind them together—while simultaneously losing her grip on reality.

With caustic wit and hypnotic writing, this unsparingly critical thrill ride through millennial life examines all that is wrong in our celebrity-obsessed internet age, and how easy it is to lose yourself in it.

“Erin Mayer bursts onto the scene as a fresh new voice with something to say. . . . Fan Club lays bare the terrible destiny of a society obsessed with  social media stalking and celebrity relationships that exist only through the glow of a screen.” —Julia Heaberlin, bestselling author of WE ARE ALL THE SAME IN THE DARK

“Twisty and suspenseful and loaded with sharp social commentary, Fan Club is both a thriller and a modern-day millennial anthem. Stylish, hypnotic, and impossible to put down. Meet your new obsession." —Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, bestselling author of The Girls Are All So Nice Here 

"In Mayer's deft hands, quarterlife burnout and the weirdness of celeb culture are compulsively fascinating. Like a good tabloid scandal, I couldn't turn away. So twisted. So fun." —Goldy Moldavsky, New York Times bestselling author of The Mary Shelley Club
