Product description

Review

Bold, inventive, haunting... With shades of Margaret Atwood and Eimear McBride, you'll be bowled over by it (Stylist (61 Books to Read This Spring))

Tempest-like... [An] eerie, uncanny literary debut... Beautifully written, pared down [and] hypnotic (Sunday Times Culture)

In raw, visceral prose, Mackintosh probes at ideas of the threat of male violence, the ways women are told to protect ourselves, love and sisterhood and survival. A hypnotic, stormy book, with one of my favourite endings I've read in a long while (The Pool)

Stunning... A haunting story of abuse, death, and desire... Chilling and topical, a breathtaking debut (Dazed)

Compulsive, eerily gorgeous prose, [it] will have you gripped until the end... A film adaptation feels inevitable... As far as debuts go, this is superb (Irish Times)

Powerfully unsettling, immensely assured, calmly devastating. It conjures a world both alien and familiar, exploring the physical and psychological cruelties enacted on women, by men, in the name of their protection, and the noble and ignoble uses to which anger can be put in a perverse world. This is a gem of a novel, and I was bowled over by it (Katherine Angel, author of 'Unmastered')

Eerily beautiful, this strange, unsettling novel creeps up and grabs hold of you (Paula Hawkins, author of 'The Girl on the Train')

[A] wildly confident debut... Take the strange social ceremonies of Yorgos Lanthimos' The Lobster and the pheromone-rich claustrophobia of Sophia Coppola's The Beguiled and you come close to the world Sophie Mackintosh conjures (AnOther Magazine)

Searing, richly drawn, eerily compelling... As foreboding in what it holds back as in what it reveals (Stylist)

Electric [and] beautifully strange... Her novel is an exercise in minimalism (Times Literary Supplement)

From the Inside Flap

Imagine a world very close to our own: where women are not safe in their bodies, where desperate measures are required to raise a daughter. This is the story of Grace, Lia and Sky, kept apart from the world for their own good and taught the terrible things that every woman must learn about love. And it is the story of the men who come to find them - three strangers washed up by the sea, their gazes hungry and insistent, trailing desire and destruction in their wake.

Hypnotic and compulsive, The Water Cure is a fever dream, a blazing vision of suffering, sisterhood and transformation. Sophie Mackintosh brings us face to face with the brutality of love, demanding to know the price of survival in a hostile world.
