I loved her suddenly. Like I could have held her in my arms. I felt just so unbalanced and I wanted to slam the door or have us all sit down on the floor, like when children camp out underneath the dining table. Fleeing to London from America after the collapse of her family, Tanya buys a house, builds a business and finally begins to conquer her addiction to sex. Then the gorgeous, chaotic and vulnerable Eleanor enters her life. Perhaps all El needs from Tanya is a safe haven, but in Sandra Newman's rollercoaster world, nowhere is safe, least of all home...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Spare, challenging and ultimately devastating with characters who will take your heart, break it, and feed it back to you on a stick. Reading Cake was as compulsive as an all-nighter with a new lover. Easily the best new book I've read this year" -- Belle de Jour
"Her searingly honest treatment of so much bare skin makes this book exceptional" * Irish Times *
"Stylish... the height of cool" * Time Out *
"Sandra Newman has an amazingly original way of thinking" -- Jonathan Safran Foer
"It is tremendously exciting to read Sandra Newman's work; I read Cake in one sitting and thought it was wonderful. Here is a writer prepared to take risks, who takes nothing for granted and who pushes the form to create an extraordinary and unforgettable world. Oh, and she's very funny too" -- Clare Allan, author of Poppy Shakespeare
