In 2008 she won the Orange Prize for New Writing, and in 2013 she was named one of Granta's Best Young British Novelists.A darkly ironic novel of ideas, a dystopia, and an absurdist thriller, from the award-winning novelist, Joanna Kavenna. 'Kavenna explores the complex nature of reality and perception with vast imaginative energy and a generous spirit.''One of the most entertaining, fluent and readable novelists around.''Joanna Kavenna is a true literary insurgent: bravely unconventional and ruthless in her quest to demonstrate the possibility of deep, distinctive experience.''Kavenna scales her mountain ... with the determination of a writer who is really living and, what's more, living a relevant life. To surrender yourself to the revelations of that life and then to come back with the assertions of prose: that is the new heroism of the woman writer, and Kavenna is in the vanguard of it.''Fun and erudite' Sunday Times
'Snort-inducingly funny' Daily Mail
'One of the cleverest books you'll read this year' Telegraph

Every system, however immaculate, has a few little glitches.

The latest in domestic tech should have predicted that businessman George Mann was about to murder his family. But instead it crashes and leads to the wrong man being caught and punished.

Are there gremlins in digital giant Beetle's ubiquitous wearable tech, talking fridges and Dickensian droids? Have they been hacked, or is something even more sinister going on?

With the clock ticking philandering Beetle CEO Guy Matthias, conflicted national security agent Eloise Jayne, depressed journalist David Strachey, and secretive hacker Gogol each try to uncover the truth in a darkly funny and horribly recognisable world only days ahead of our own.

'Witty and horrifyingly relevant . . . Full of dark humour and refreshingly frank social commentary with a distinctly Orwellian flavour.' Scotsman
