MEDIA REVIEWS
'Gripping, disturbing and compelling - it's been a while since I've read a novel so good at uncomfortable psychological accuracy, dark humour and out and out horror. I loved it.' - Jenn Ashworth, author of Ghosted; 'Full of existential dread and sardonic humour, I enjoyed it immensely.' - Sharlene Teo, author of Ponti; 'A consuming exploration of the madness of love and its distortions of the lover and the loved. A literary debut that has so much to say.' - Adam Nevill, author of The Ritual; 'Fresh and compelling, this claustrophobic debut will suck you in and never spit you back out.' - Eliza Clark, author of Boy Parts; 'This quiet novel has a wonderfully dark and savage little heart. Not only did it move me, its horror still lingers. A fantastic debut.' - Matt Wesolowski, author of Six Stories; 'A genuinely original novel somewhere between horror and magic realism, enviably well written, it lingers deep in the mind.' - Ramsey Campbell; 'Uncomfortable and unnerving - the best kind of blackest comedy.' - Aliya Whiteley, author of Skyward Inn

“Weird, innovative totally absorbing!”

Again a book like you have never read before. A tale of ostensibly a pretty ordinary girl. In reality a horror story which repels and fascinates. Definitely one for horror fans but also contributing to the feminist... More
