Such a Fun Age

Kiley Reid


ISBN 9781526612151


The instant Sunday Times and New York Times bestselle
When Emira is apprehended at a supermarket for 'kidnapping' the white child she's actually babysitting, it sets off an explosive chain of events. Her employer Alix, a feminist blogger with the best of intentions, resolves to make things right.
But Emira herself is aimless, broke and wary of Alix's desire to help. When a surprising connection emerges between the two women, it sends them on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know – about themselves, each other, and the messy dynamics of privilege.

Reviews, News & Interviews:

This is the calling card of a virtuoso talent, a thrilling millennial spin on the 19th-century novel of manners that may call to mind another recent literary sensation. I had thought of ending this review by predicting that Kiley Reid may be the next Sally Rooney. But Such a Fun Age is so fresh and essential that I predict instead that next year we'll be anxiously awaiting the next Kiley Reid. Guardian

What a joy to find a debut novel so good that it leaves you looking forward to the rest of its author's career . . . A tantalisingly plotted tale about the way we live now . . . Such a Fun Age speaks for itself; I suspect it will turn its writer into a star. The Times

Will fire off a million debates . . . The pages sing with charisma and humour. Sunday Times

Razor-sharp . . . Reid writes with a confidence and verve that produce magnetic prose . . . A cracking debut - charming, authentic and every bit as entertaining as it is calmly, intelligently damning. Observer

Smart, fast-paced and beautifully observed, Reid tackles timely themes around race and political correctness with wit and verve. Mail on Sunday
