'A gripping new novel' India Knight 'Her writing is beautiful' Rachel Seiffert, author of Dark Room and A Boy in Winter'Uplifting, unputdownable and mordantly funny' Sharlene Teo, author of Ponti____________________________________________You wake up.
You go to work. You don't go outside for twelve hours at a time. You have strategy meetings about how to use hashtags.
After work you order expensive drink after expensive drink until you're so blackout drunk you can't remember the circumstances which have led you to waking up in bed with your colleague.
The next day you stay in bed until the afternoon, scrolling through your social media feeds and wondering why everyone else seems to be achieving so much.
Sometimes you don't get out of bed at all. Then you hear about Life on Nyx, a programme that allows 100 lucky winners the chance to escape it all, move to another planet and establish a new way of life.
One with meaning and purpose. One without Instagram and online dating. There's one caveat: if you go, you can never come back. But you aren't worried about that. After all, what on Earth could there possibly be to miss? ____________________________________________'I loved it' Megan Hunter'Daring and original' Laura Kaye'One of the most original and urgent novels I've read this year' Clare Fisher'I'd follow Sauma's voice down any wormhole' Rowan Hisayo Buchanan'Sublime' Otegha Uwagba 'Tinged with melancholy and yearning, this novel is wry and frequently beautiful, and its culmination is surprising and deeply moving' Guardian'Luiza Sauma takes us on a breathtaking voyage through both the farthest reaches of space and the innermost depths of the human soul' Peng Shepherd
