Reviews


  • ‘I ripped through this. It’s pacey, devastating, prescient, compelling and confronting, not only because it’s the first thing I’ve read that even touches the sides of the very real pandemic we’re living through, but also because a world without men? It was uncomfortable and fascinating to read about. This is a sure-fire hit, and rightly so!’ – LAURA JANE WILLIAMS
  • ‘Brilliant, prescient and unputdownable’ JENNY COLGAN
  • ‘A tour de force – a feminist reimagining of society’ GILLIAN MCALLISTER
