‘A new literary star’ The Times
‘An essential new talent’ Guardian

The instant Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller

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.

Description

Such a Fun Age:

Review

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)

Witty and incisive . . . What Kiley Reid’s debut novel delivers is a more compelling indictment of humans, of how we interact with ourselves and each other, than most writers could muster . . . A dazzlingly clear-eyed study of relationships: between partners, mothers and daughters, peers and friends (Financial Times)

I LOVED this extraordinarily deft debut, written with wisdom, kindness and sharp humour . . . Clever, compelling and beautifully written (Daily Mail)

Marks the arrival of a serious new talent (i)

A voice to watch . . . A smart, witty debut that smuggles sharp points about racial blindness, privilege and the gig economy inside a zesty comedy of manners (Metro)

One of the most buzzed-about books of 2020 – and for good reason . . . Brilliant at capturing relationships, as well as the obliviousness of white privilege. Smart, punchy, well-paced and with an irresistible twist (Elle)

About the Author
