Plot summary[edit]

Love Creeps is about a woman who has lost her desire - so she decides to emulate her stalker, and become a stalker herself.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

Authors Bret Easton Ellis, Tama Janowitz, and Edmund White provided blurbs, and film director Brian Dannelly said of it: "It's a love story of stalkers in New York. It's great. It's the funniest book I've ever read."[3]

Writing for the Boston Globe, Diane White compared Filipacci's style to that of Muriel Spark and described Love Creeps as "extraordinarily funny".[1]
