`Every woman should own a copy of this book' Erin Kelly
`Brilliant' Stylist
`The best thing I've read in AGES' Gill Sims
`Fresh and funny' Guardian
`I love this book!' Josie Long
'Fresh, filthy and funny' Grazia

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...

`Frank, funny and fabulously filthy' (Erin Kelly), In at the Deep End is a warm, brilliantly observed debut from a major new talent.

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, 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' 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

`I was snorting with mirth like a little piggy on every page. Utter filth and very, very, very funny' Sarra Manning, author of The Rise and Fall of Becky Sharp

`I read In at the Deep End in a laughing (sometimes cringing) flash and then handed it to my wife who did the same. And then we talked and talked about it. (And then we made out.)' Emily Danforth, author of The Miseducation of Cameron Post

`Raucous and raunchy tale of coming out, of good sex with bad people ... a rip-roaring read that's also painfully honest about what it means to be a sexually active woman of any orientation' DIVA Magazine

“Actually hilarious”

“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
