Reviews

"With this electric romp of a novel, Pilger turns a neon light on to the intersection of romantic love and feminism." --Publishers Weekly "Craving whatever she hasn't got and detesting whatever she has, Zoe Pilger's brilliant and psychically bulimic narrator is everyone's anti-Bridget Jones. An awareness of the pathology of romantic love, and a terror of what lies in its absence, lies at the heart of this brutally funny book." --Chris Kraus, author of I Love Dick "Protagonist Ann-Marie wanders through London's glittery underground of Bright Young Artists, concussed by life itself. Pilger's love story fictionalizes her contexts so extremely that every adolescent romance--with art, feminism, even that gross dude she had a one night stand with--is only a deceptive form mobilized to assault neutered authority. A masochistic siren song--100 percent more awesome than The Little Mermaid." --Trisha Low, author of The Compleat Purge "Super-smart, funny and dark as midnight." --Marie Claire UK "An unflinching account of post-feminist urban life. Satirical, snarky and wildly entertaining." --Observer "Brilliantly odd, very funny." --Financial Times "Perfectly pitched satire." --New Statesman "With this electric romp of a novel, Pilger turns a neon light on to the intersection of romantic love and feminism."
