In her wildly acclaimed new novel Claire Kilroy creates an unforgettable heroine, whose fierce love for her young son clashes with the seismic change to her own identity.

As her marriage strains and she struggles with questions of love, autonomy, creativity and the passing of time, an old friend makes a welcome return - but can he really offer a lifeline to the woman she used to be?


"Raw, funny and angry, it is a novel that provokes a huge range of emotions in the reader: sorrow for the agony that the new mum endures, laughter and tenderness, and awe at the elemental and universal aspects of parenthood.". -- Monica Ali 

"A beautiful and harrowing novel about what it can feel like to be a first-time mother." ― 
Indira Varma

"This. Book. It is the most
 visceral and raw portrayal of new motherhood and loss of identity that we have ever read. Kilroy is utterly majestic, delving deep into the complexities of relationships and the human psyche [...] You are in her mind from beginning to end, and it's an astonishing experience". ― Glamour
