Gillian Flynn, née le 24 février 1971 à Kansas City, est une scénariste et romancière américaine, spécialisée dans le roman policier.

Biography

Comme jeune fille, Gillian Flynn aimait regarder les films avec son père, comme Alien, Bonnie et Clyde et Psychose. Son père était professeur de cinéma.

Elle fait des études supérieures à l'Université du Kansas qu'elle poursuit à l'Université Northwestern, où elle obtient une maîtrise en journalisme. Elle désire devenir reporter d'affaires criminelles, mais comprenant qu'elle n'a guère les qualités pour cet emploi, elle travaille plutôt comme critique littéraire au magazine américain Entertainment Weekly durant une dizaine d'années. Au cours de cette période, elle épouse Brett Nolan dont elle a un fils.

Sa carrière littéraire s'amorce en 2006 avec la publication d'un premier thriller intitulé Sur ma peau (Sharp Objects). Son troisième roman, Les Apparences (Gone Girl), une immersion dans l'intimité d'un couple de New-Yorkais partis s'installer dans le Missouri, lui vaut une reconnaissance internationale. Toutefois, à la parution du roman, certains critiques accusent Gillian Flynn d'être misogyne en raison des descriptions peu flatteuses dont sont souvent affublés les personnages féminins de ses livres. L'auteur a répondu à ces commentaires en déclarant qu'elle estime que l'idée de mettre une « très, très petite vision du féminisme » sur ses récits empêche d'admettre que les femmes peuvent être aussi bonnes que méchantes, voire égoïstes.

The day of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne returns home to find that his wife Amy is missing. Her disappearance receives heavy press coverage, as Amy was the inspiration for her parents' popular "Amazing Amy" children's books. Detective Rhonda Boney does a walkthrough of their house and finds poorly concealed evidence of a struggle. The police conduct a forensic analysis and uncover the remnants of cleaned blood stains, leading to the conclusion that Amy was murdered. Suspicions arise that Nick is responsible, and his awkward behavior is interpreted by the media as characteristic of a sociopath.
