Product description

Review

This sharp exploration of a dystopian London that doesn't feel so far from our own is full of female friendship, feminism and delicious description. --Top 20 beach reads, MTV

Beautifully and elegantly written... A slow burn to a very moving ending. --The Guardian Not the Booker Judges

Set in a chillingly plausible post-apocalyptic Britain, Sweet Fruit, Sour Land is about what it means to be human when civilization has been destroyed. Utterly absorbing and with prose to savour, this is a novel that will stay with me. --Hannah Kohler, author of The Outside Lands

A sharp critique of a hierarchical society... peppered with unusual, thought-provoking and at times poetic insight into memory, sense, questioning the status quo, including what feminist resistance looks like. --Laura Waddell, Nasty Women and Know Your Place contributor

I loved this tale of London in the future and I actually can't stop thinking about it now I've finished... 5 stars. --What Rebecca's Read blog

A sharp critique of a hierarchical society... peppered with unusual, thought-provoking and at times poetic insight into memory, sense, questioning the status quo, including what feminist resistance looks like. --Laura Waddell, Nasty Women and Know Your Place contributor.
