Katie Kitamura is a master of building quiet, psychologically thrilling novels that beautifully unravel the uncertainty, ambition, and loss that a person can experience. In her latest, a young woman creates a new life in The Hague, where she acts as an interpreter for the International Court. But there are seeds of disquiet: the presence of her new boyfriend’s ex-wife lingers, her new friend witnesses a violent act which she becomes enmeshed in, and at work, a controversy ignites when she translates for a former president accused of war crimes. Intimacies is sly, observant, and will shift the ground from beneath your feet.
