But, in all honesty I dysfunctional literary couples more than I probably should. Where does the passion go? Then again, there are some pretty gnarly couples out there, if you really take a look at it. Jay Gatsby and Daisy were absolutely awful for each other, since their relationship was entirely based on basically how many shirts Gatsby had. Lady Brett Ashley and Jake both desperately loved the idea of loving each other, but never got around to it thanks to a nasty war injury thanks, Hemingway! Sure, that angst and longing keeps pages turning, but at the end of the day, these people are just not right for each other.

Toxic relationships lie at the heart of so many thrillers, our pages filled with terrible marriages, gaslighters, stalkers and the obsessed. We seem to enjoy reading about dysfunctional relationships as much as we do great loves, maybe because we are all capable of being the best and worst versions of ourselves in romantic relationships. Reading about these couples is a reminder that the scariest places to be are often not the haunted house or the dark street, but inside our own heads or trapped within a bad relationship. Deep Water by Patricia Highsmith. A brilliant portrayal of just how wrong a marriage can go.
In Nigeria, romance has always been a popular medium for storytelling across all artforms. Toxic relationships often go beyond romance. Toxicity could stem from individual differences—whether cultural, economic, political or religious—that yield bitterness, envy, distrust or spite between friends and family. This is the primary theme of my novel, partly drawn from personal experiences, where the biases of backgrounds and loyalties to later associations threaten friendships as individuals within a tight-knit group come of age. The portrayal of toxic conflict in relationships fascinates me because it asks questions beyond what people can achieve for love, hate, fear, grief or any other emotion.
