Product description


Combining an intriguing mystery with political scrutiny, Cosslett reveals how four walls can mean so much more than bricks and mortar. --Stylist

Cosslett writes perceptively about the anxiety of young adults today; for their parents, life was wild, free and cheap, and their own lives do not seem destined to match up... A spirited debut. --The Guardian

A wise coming-of-age novel that dissects present-day London... A thought provoking and evocative story. --Culturefly

Cosslett paints a portrait of millennial London, contrasted with the idealism of Harmony's bohemian parents... Compelling. --The Herald

Arresting… an almost palpable vision of London during a hot summer. --The Sunday Herald

A compelling and emotionally perceptive portrait of human fragility and tenderness. --The Irish Times

I have loved RLC's thought provoking journalism for a long time. Now she's written a brave, beautiful, coming of age novel - full of generational conflict, trauma, and Bohemianism. Truly a writer to watch. --Nina Stibbe

Surprising and keenly observed, this is an original contemporary presentation of London: nostalgic but also brutal, with deft and poignant cultural comparisons. A jagged, bold, time-twisting dazzler! --Emma Jane Unsworth

A rich, intriguing archive of uncanny sensation and emotion. It is a brilliant portrayal of a time and place in all its textured, strange specificity, as well as being a tender and clear-eyed portrait of the people who pass through, transform and are transformed by it. --Nell Stevens

A hazy, evocative novel about place and belonging and a beautiful love letter to London in the summer. --Sophie Mackintosh

An elegiac intergenerational howl that answers boldly back to its literary parents. Cosslett's talent for social commentary continues to arraign and amuse in this boozy tainted love-song to London. --Claire Lowdon
