Review

Of all the books that I read this summer I think this was my absolute favourite. It really blew me away. Phenomenally written ... [Broder's] writing is so creative and can be so abstract and so unexpected while also being so universal and earthy and funny. It was raw and powerful and it made me cry (Dolly Alderton, The High Low)

Bizarrely brilliant. What should you be reading this summer? A tragi-comic interspecies love story with undertones of ancient Greek philosophy and sex-positive feminism. Obviously (The Times)

A novel that has such depth, and so many layers. If it doesn't make its way onto your list of books to read, then you're probably doing summer wrong (Erotic Review)

One of the must-reads of the season (Elle, Ultimate Summer Books Round-Up)

Witty, sharp and painfully insightful . Looking for a smart summer read? This is it (The Pool)

A frank, provocative, and brilliant debut that blends fantasy with realism as Broder examines just how unusual a shape love can take (The debut novelists to know this year Independent)

Strangely, almost uncomfortably, addictive . This book appeals to the Bridget Jones in all of us, searching for true love and unhealthily influenced by fairytales. It's a fusion of the fantastical and the real with a sprinkling of the erotic, and is both beautifully written and darkly comic (Stylist)

Literary erotica merges with magical realism and black humour in this extraordinary debut novel about a dejected young woman's night-time liaisons with a merman. Strong stuff, but it's spreading quickly through word of mouth, making it summer's cool read to be spotted with (You Magazine)

In Broder's charmingly kooky debut novel, a depressed Ph.D. student chances upon her dream date - and he's half fish. Broder approaches the great existential subjects as if they were a collection of bad habits. That's what makes her writing so funny, and so sad (Editors' Choice Picks, New York Times Book Review)

In this dark, physical tale, an academic writing her dissertation on Sappho moves to Venice Beach, where, on the verge of a nervous breakdown, she falls in love with a merman. Broder's novel is a feverish - and often quite graphic - exploration of fantasy and desire, and the extremes to which they can take us. (And how, ultimately, nothing can match a dog's love.) It's simultaneously hilarious, sinister and utterly mesmerising (Tatler)

Book Description

Profoundly modern and darkly comic, The Pisces is about a heartbroken PhD student who over one summer falls in dangerous, ecstatic love with a merman
