Product description

Review

An immensely talented young writer ... Her fearlessness renews one's faith in the power of literature (George Saunders, author of Lincoln in the Bardo, winner of 2017 Man Booker Prize)

Emma Glass's fictional debut - a novella-cum-prose poem - packs one hell of a punch . Glass's commitment to the visceral is like nothing else I've read . Peach inhabits a strange, horror-story realm of the hyperreal, and Glass's vision goes a long way towards portraying an experience that's near-impossible to articulate (Observer)

Addressing an all-too-relevant issue, the novel charts the physical and psychological effects on Peach through stylised, poetic prose, self-confessedly informed by James Joyce's experiments with language. Referenced variously as "the new Jane Eyre", "intimately weird" and "exhilaratingly bold" (Independent, Books to look out for in 2018)

Glass's tale of a girl neglected by her parents and abused by others is a dark poetic read that is a visceral in its telling. It's an extraordinary debut that we urge you to seek out (Stylist, 'Books to read this Spring')

Peach by Emma Glass is a short and brutal tale of sexual assault and its resulting traumas that carries clear echoes of Eimear McBride ... The language is scintillating, the emotional heft remarkable (Observer, The best fiction for 2018)

Peach is shocking, revealing and deals with a subject most authors would shy away from. It is uncomfortable, worthy and brave .Glass deserves recognition for her bravery regarding both the topic and style (Independent)

A visceral work . Glass uses fragmented, sensory language to evoke the lasting trauma of a sexual assault, from dissociative episodes to body dysmorphia. But for all its emotional insight, the book's boldest choice is its suspension between fantasy and reality (New Statesman)

Genre-defying and brilliantly surreal novella ... Barely 100 pages, and somewhere between poetry and prose, this is a book to be devoured in a single sitting. Glass is an exciting new author to know (Vogue)

An impressive achievement. There are obvious Joycean and Eimear McBridean influences on her writing, which is rich with onomatopoeia, musical rhythm and graphic, bloody imagery .A truly original voice for the future. Peach is a meeting place for expressionist poetry and Cronenberg-style body horror that's not something you come across every day (Big Issue)

A debut of consistently visceral writing ... The dark poetic world of Emma Glass's debut, Peach, immerses the reader in a young woman's personal hell . Through prose that is lyrical, mythic and yet wonderfully clear, Peach expounds on themes of good versus evil, and the base nature of desire, consumption and carnality . There is a spoken word vibrancy to Glass's prose . Not since Patrick McCabe's The Butcher Boy has such symbolism been used so effectively to make clear one woman's brutal experiences (Irish Times)
