Review

Part office satire, part thriller with a twist, this is a fresh and original take on race and class in the publishing industry … A satire that uproots the insidious ways race and class merge in office dialogue and politics, and a thriller with echoes of the great science fiction writer Octavia Butler - Guardian

Zakiya Dalila Harris has written one of the books of the year. Piercing and funny . . . The book builds up to a climax that really will blow your mind - Stylist

Weaving in important discussions around race, navigating white spaces and the corporate world, this is a vital piece of literature that will have you howling and wincing at the same time - Refinery29 UK

[This] stunning debut . . . flies into uncharted territory as a racially charged thriller/horror mash-up and perfectly sticks its unpredictable landing . . . Timely and timeless - Sunday Times

A horror-style take on what it means to be black in America today. … Harris builds tension like no other – you’re hugely invested in Nella’s success, and the twist at the end is simply brilliant (read: terrifying) - Independent

Bright and funny . . . You will turn page after page after page in your eagerness to unravel this unique tale -- Oyinkan Braithwaite, New York Times

bitingly satirical novel about race and the workplace - Independent

Comparisons to Raven Leilani's Luster wouldn't be unfounded, but prepare for this novel to veer in an unexpected direction it's part-psychological thriller, part-satire, part social-takedown - Irish Times

Packed full of shrewd observations on power struggles and strength, this is unputdownable - Cosmopolitan UK

I loved it! This is one of the cleverest books I’ve read for years . . . The subtlety of Nella’s character is incredible . . . so brilliantly fine-tuned. I fully expect to see this book sweeping all the prize lists -- Natasha Pulley

Both a captivating thriller and a smart look at race, power and office politics - i

The funniest, wildest, deepest, most thought-provoking ride of a book -- Attica Locke

Ideal for anyone who has ever felt manipulated, threatened, or dismissed in the workplace - Fortune

Witty, inventive and smart . . . A brilliant combustion of suspense, horror and social commentary that leaves no assumption unchallenged and no page unturned -- Walter Mosley
