Product description

Review

"You can't help flying through the pages, drawn in by the energy simmering right under the surface of the story, waiting for it to burst."
--Buzzfeed

"This riveting, brutally hilarious, ultra-dark novel is an explosive debut by Oyinkan Braithwaite, and heralds an exciting new literary voice... Delicious."
--Nylon

"Braithwaite's blazing debut is as sharp as a knife...bitingly funny and brilliantly executed, with not a single word out of place."
--Publishers Weekly, (starred review)

"Who is more dangerous? A femme fatale murderess or the quiet, plain woman who cleans up her messes? I never knew what was going to happen, but found myself pulling for both sisters, as I relished the creepiness and humor of this modern noir."
--Helen Ellis, New York Times bestselling author of American Housewife

"Disturbing, sly and delicious, Braithwaite's novel compels us to consider the limits of loyalty and the insidious weight of silence."
--Ayobami Adebayo, author of Stay With Me

"A gem, in the most accurate sense: small, hard, sharp, and polished to perfection. Every pill-sized chapter is exemplary. Where others waste ink and trees, Braithwaite can conjure fully-detailed settings and characters with a finger snap. Of these, all shine. One dazzles. Tell Shirley Jackson that the Merricat Blackwood of the 21st century lives in Lagos, her name is Ayoola, and she is so obliviously/adorably/hilariously/heartbreakingly wicked, she'll make you cry tears of all flavors."
--Edgar Cantero, New York Times bestselling author of Meddling Kids

"Sly, risky, and filled with surprises, Oyinkan Braithwaite holds nothing back in this wry and refreshingly inventive novel about violence, sister rivalries and simply staying alive."
--Idra Novey, author of Those Who Knew and Ways to Disappear

"This slim, scathingly black comedy delves into two sisters' tenuous dynamic -- heightened since one of them is, erm, a serial killer. Such morbidity only sharpens the book's comic edge, which emerges via Braithwaite's deadpan prose."
--Entertainment Weekly

"Even your most extravagant speculations about what's really going on with these wildly contrasting yet oddly simpatico siblings will be trumped in this skillful, sardonic debut."
--Kirkus Review

"Braithwaite's debut is written in quick, economical chapters that brilliantly render the setting...A darkly, darkly funny novel...It strips away the romanticism of the complicated sisterly relationship but perfectly illustrates its complicated contradictions."
--Booklist --This text refers to the library edition.
