Waterstones Says

Fabulously filthy and side-splittingly funny, Davies’s provocative debut features a sex-starved female lead who finds herself unexpectedly drawn to another woman. 

Winner of the Polari Book Prize 2020

Shortilsted for the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize 2019 

Until recently, Julia hadn't had sex in three years.

But now:
* a one-night stand is accusing her of breaking his penis;

* a sexually confident lesbian is making eyes at her over confrontational modern art;

* and she's wondering whether trimming her pubes makes her a bad feminist.

Julia's about to learn that she's been looking for love - and satisfaction - in all the wrong places...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Without a doubt, In at the Deep End, by Kate Davies, is the afterparty book for anyone looking to extend their Fleabag fun. Newly published, Davies' book is raucous, sexy, poignant and smart, and is definitely the most fun you will have with lesbian BDSM short of doing it yourself' - Hadley Freeman, The Guardian

'Brilliant! The best thing I've read in AGES. I can't remember the last time a book made me laugh so hard, while also making me think about life, relationships and what makes us who we are' - Gill Sims, author of Why Mummy Drinks

'A frank, very funny and, at times, filthy exploration of sex, love and self-understanding ... brilliant' - Stylist

'Fleabag-level dirty jokes, Eleanor Oliphant-levels of empathy and a heroine who feels like your best mate spilling the gossip after two glasses drunk a little too quickly. Fresh, funny and filthy' - Grazia

'[A] fresh and funny lesbian coming-of-age adventure ... a Sapphic sexual odyssey' - The Guardian

'Frank, funny and fabulously filthy, but also tender and moving. Every woman should own a copy of this book' - Erin Kelly author of He Said/She Said

'Utterly original, hilarious' - Francesca Simon, The Times

'This year's funniest book? Certainly its filthiest, as Julia embarks on a journey of sexual discovery, taking in bad parties, worse art and some excellent conversations' - iPaper

“Honest and hilarious”

Kate Davies' debut novel is just about as far as it gets from the children's books she used to write! In At The Deep End is both honest and hilarious as it explores modern love, sex and relationships. There... More

“Actually hilarious”

Maybe not one for the faint hearted and you DEFINITELY don’t want anyone reading this over your shoulder on the commute. I was laughing out loud numerous times through this. It’s outrageously funny, very naughty and... More

“A refreshing, spot-on comedy with a surprisingly powerful heart.”

I started this book expecting something fluffy and fun, and I definitely got those things – but I also got a hell of a lot more, and it was wonderful. This is the story of Julia, who comes out as a lesbian, falls into... More
