The Water Cure : LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2018 Paperback / softback



'A gripping, sinister fable' Margaret Atwood (via Twitter)'An extraordinary debut - otherworldly, luminous, precise' Guardian'Bold, inventive, haunting...

With shades of Margaret Atwood and Eimear McBride, you'll be bowled over by it' Stylist Grace, Lia and Sky live in an abandoned hotel, on a sun-bleached island, beside a poisoned sea.

Their parents raised them there to keep them safe, to make them good.

The world beyond the water is contaminated and men are the contamination.

But one day three strangers wash ashore - men who stare at the sisters hungrily, helplessly.

Men who bring trouble. 'Visceral, hypnotic . . . with one of my favourite endings I've read in a long while' The Pool 'An unsettling dark fantasy... [It] lingers long after the final page' Daily Telegraph 'Otherworldly, brutal and poetic: a feminist fable set by the sea, a female Lord of the Flies.

It felt like a book I'd been waiting to read for a long time' Emma Jane Unsworth
