Three estranged siblings return to their family home in New York after their beloved sister’s death in this unforgettable story of grief, hope, and the complexities of family, from the acclaimed author of Cleopatra and Frankenstein.

The three Blue sisters are exceptional—and exceptionally different. 
Avery, the eldest and a recovering heroin addict turned strait-laced lawyer, lives with her wife in London; Bonnie, a former boxer, works as a bouncer in Los Angeles following a devastating defeat; and Lucky, the youngest, models in Paris while trying to outrun her hard-partying ways. They also had a fourth sister, Nicky, whose unexpected death left the family reeling. A year later, as they each navigate grief, addiction, and ambition, they find they must return to New York to stop the sale of the apartment they were raised in.

But coming home is never as easy as it seems. As the sisters reckon with the disappointments of their childhood and the loss of the only person who held them together, they realize that the greatest secrets they’ve been keeping might not have been from one another but from themselves.

Imbued with Coco Mellors’s signature combination of humor and heart, 
Blue Sisters is a story of what it takes to keep living after loss—and, ultimately, to fall in love with life again.

REVIEWS

“With great sensitivity to language and psychology, Mellors offers an immersive portrait of three young women as they search one another and their contexts for antidotes to complex afflictions. The result is a stunning exploration of sisterhood and grief, addiction and recovery, pain and pleasure. At once contemporary and timeless, Blue Sisters is captivating.”Tess Gunty

“Suspended between the high of escapism and the slap of reality, the story of Avery, Bonnie, Nicky, and Lucky is a healing balm to lost souls. Blue Sisters will unearth tenderness and heartache from spectacular depths within you, giving new dimensions to the word blue.”Xochitl Gonzalez

“Coco Mellors has the unique gift of making the picturesque, almost Wes Anderson–chic Blue sisters feel viscerally real, and it is a pleasure to be in their world even as they struggle with difficult things: grief, addiction, and generational trauma. In prose that is at times transcendently beautiful, Mellors has painted a portrait of sisterhood in all its pettiness and messiness and beauty and grace. It’s stunning.”Rufi Thorpe
