Eve: the new graphic novel from the award-winning author of Becoming Unbecoming (Paperback)Una (author)
A powerful novel of mothers and daughters, and how we imagine our future, from acclaimed author of BECOMING UNBECOMING
'A disturbing and necessary book for our times ... Una has held up a chilling mirror for us, and leaves us with a choice - what kind of world will we make for ourselves?' JACKY FLEMING
In the near future, in a world that seems just like our own, Eve grows up in a loving family that is increasingly threatened by a society which seems to be sleepwalking into totalitarianism. After a catastrophe that changes everything, Eve must set off on her own, over the wild Yorkshire moors, to try to find a new way to live.
Eve is a book of mothers, daughters, human relationships, trust and community, human weakness, conflict, hopeful futures and painful pasts. It is speculative fiction that feels incredible timely: Una explores the rise of authoritarianism on both the political right and left and imagines where it might all lead.

“This book is not pretty”
This book is bleak and scary, I hated reading it for all the right reasons.
What a necessary and powerful book.
I am a bit speechless when I think about it, so I will leave it at that, but I hope you decide to read... More
“'Mixed is what humanity is'”
Told and illustrated in a sometimes deceptively simple style, 'Eve' deftly shows how an apocalypse can also be deceptively simple - a slow burn rather than a big bang. Humanity must put our petty squabbles... More
