  • Long Listed for the Man Booker Prize 2018

    Imagine a world very close to our own: where women are not safe in their bodies, where desperate measures are required to raise a daughter. This is the story of Grace, Lia and Sky, kept apart from the world for their own good and taught the terrible things that every woman must learn about love. And it is the story of the men who come to find them - three strangers washed up by the sea, their gazes hungry and insistent, trailing desire and destruction in their wake.

    'An extraordinary debut novel. Otherworldly, luminous, precise... She is writing the way that Sofia Coppola would shoot the end of the world' Guardian

    "Bold, inventive, haunting... With shades of Margaret Atwood and Eimear McBride, you'll be bowled over by it"Stylist

    "Visceral, hypnotic... with one of my favourite endings I've read in a long while" The Pool
