Overview

A darkly funny, gothic novel about a lonely graduate student drawn into a clique of rich girls at a New England university. A summer reading pick for the NEW YORK TIMES and COSMOPOLITAN 'Brilliant, sharp, weird ... I loved it and couldn't put it down' KRISTEN ROUPENIAN. 'Made me nod and cackle in terrified recognition' LENA DUNHAM. Samantha Heather Mackey couldn't be more of an outsider in her small, highly selective MFA program at New England's Warren University. A scholarship student who prefers the company of her dark imagination to that of most people, she is utterly repelled by the rest of her fiction writing cohort - a clique of unbearably twee rich girls who call each other 'Bunny', and are often found entangled in a group hug so tight they become one. But everything changes when Samantha receives an invitation to the Bunnies' fabled 'Smut Salon', and finds herself inexplicably drawn to their front door. As Samantha plunges deeper and deeper into the sinister yet saccharine world of the Bunnies, the boundary between fiction and reality begins to blur. A spellbinding, down-the-rabbit-hole tale of loneliness and belonging, creativity and agency, and friendship and desire, Bunny is the dazzlingly original second book from the author of 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl . 'Hilarious and subversive, magical and knife-sharp' LAURA VAN DEN BERG. 'Equal parts wit, fancy, and wickedness' SARAH SHUN-LIEN BYNUM. 'Enchanting and stunningly bizarre' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY .

Reviews

'A highly original, dark, gothic novel, at once exuberantly weird and extremely funny' The Bookseller. 'It is not an exaggeration to say that I devoured Bunny - teeth, fur, claws and all ... A truly delectable novel that is equal parts wit, fancy, and wickedness. Unafraid to challenge some sacrosanct notions about women artists, female friendship, and writing, her book is a compulsively readable testament to the sheer creative force of loneliness and longing' Sarah Shun-lien Bynum. 'Hilarious and subversive, magical and knife-sharp. This novel - a send-up of academia, an astute exploration of class in creative circles, and an ode to the uncanny power of art - confirms Mona Awad as one of our great chroniclers of what it means to be alive right now' Laura van den Berg. 'The Secret History meets Jennifer's Body. This brilliant, sharp, weird book skewers the heightened rhetoric of obsessive female friendship in a way I don't think I've ever seen before. I loved it and I couldn't put it down' Kristen Roupenian.

An enchanting and stunningly bizarre novel' Publishers Weekly. 'A highly original, dark, gothic novel, at once exuberantly weird and extremely funny' The Bookseller. 'One of the most pristine and delightful attacks on popular girls since Clueless. Made me nod and cackle in terrified recognition' Lena Dunham.
