A single speaker uses the story of their experience in a seemingly unequal, unfaithful relationship as a prism through which to examine the complicated hold we each have on one another. With a clear and unforgiving eye, the narrator unpicks the behaviour of all involved, herself included, and makes startling connections between the power struggles at the heart of human relationships and those of the wider world, in turn offering a devastating critique of access, social media, patriarchal heteronormative relationships, and our cultural obsession with status and how that status is

In this incendiary debut, Sheena Patel announces herself as a writer capable of rendering a range of emotions and visceral experiences on the page. Sex, violence, politics, tenderness, humour – Patel handles them all with both originality and dexterity of voice.
