  • Subversive and sophisticated… [Rosie Price’s] exploration of sexual violence and class makes for an unforgettable read

    Elle, **Books to Look Out for in 2019**
  • Bringing together themes of survival, agency, complicity, self-denial and, ultimately, courage, this assured book is one of the most powerful debuts you’ll ever read.

  • An incredibly nuanced exploration of the complexities of sexual violence, WHAT RED WAS heralds the arrival of a major new literary talent. This is an important book.

    Louise O'Neill, author of ASKING FOR IT and ALMOST LOVE
  • WHAT RED WAS is a gripping novel that shines an unflinching light on trauma and its prismatic impact. A deeply necessary book, elegant and assured even as it burns at the centre with cool, clear-eyed rage.

    Sophie Mackintosh, author of THE WATER CURE
