Description

'The anti-Bridget Jones … brutally funny' Chris Kraus

Ann-Marie's life has collapsed, and she's blaming everyone but herself. Twenty-three, heartbroken, skint and furious, she's convinced that love – sweet love! – is the answer to all of her problems. But then she meets an unlikely saviour in legendary feminist Stephanie Haight, for whom Ann-Marie becomes the first step in re-educating an entire generation out of their ironic detachment and into the welcoming arms of second-wave feminism.

As Ann-Marie's semi-consensual feminist awakening leads her from neo-burlesque pop-up strip clubs to ritual worship ceremonies summoning ancient power goddesses, Zoe Pilger spins around her heroine a fiercely clever and unapologetically wild satire for our narcissistic, hedonistic, post-post-feminist times.

'Pilger might be the heiress to Angela Carter.' Deborah Levy
