Waterstones Says

From the author of the highly acclaimed The Water Cure, Blue Ticket is a harrowing, stunning exploration of free will, the sphere of motherhood and the consequences of patriarchal violence. With this taut and visceral feminist dystopia, Macintosh cements her place as one of the brightest stars of contemporary fiction.

From the Man Booker Prize Longlisted author of The Water Cure

Discover this chilling new novel about motherhood and personhood, free will and fate, human longing and animal instinct. 

Calla knows how the lottery works. Everyone does. On the day of your first bleed, you report to the station to learn what kind of woman you will be. A white ticket grants you children. A blue ticket grants you freedom. You are relieved of the terrible burden of choice. And, once you've taken your ticket, there is no going back.

But what if the life you're given is the wrong one?

Blue Ticket is a devastating enquiry into free will and the fraught space of motherhood. Bold and chilling, it pushes beneath the skin of female identity and patriarchal violence, to the point where human longing meets our animal bodies.

“Feels all too possible..”

I want to say I enjoyed this book but enjoy is not the right word. It was uncomfortable to read in a way some of the best books are. With echoes of Atwood this is certainly a book for our times. As with The Water... More
