Praise

“Mona Awad’s precision is only matched by her wit as she mounts one of the most pristine, delightful attacks on popular girls since Clueless. Bunny made me cackle and nod in terrified recognition. You will be glued to your cashmere blanket.” —Lena Dunham, author of Not That Kind of Girl
 
“[Bunny] is like one of those razors marketed to women: you know, pink but still GD dangerous.” —Elle, “The 30 Best Books to Read This Summer”
 
“To call this a dark comedy undersells the richness of its message, and to say it’s a satire misses its realism. Bunny is so sharp it will leave you bloody.” —Vulture, “12 Books We Can’t Wait to Read This Summer”
 
“Tall, dark and culty.” —The Skimm
 
“Viciously funny and topical . . . [Awad is] exquisitely precise in skewering academia . . . the book is just funny as hell.'” —Boston.com, “22 books that local experts say you should read this summer”
 
“Social acceptance, female friendship, the coming-of-age process . . . it’s all ripe for the discussion here.” —Bustle, “20 Books Coming Out in 2019 That Will Make The Perfect Book Club Picks”
 
“Bunny is the lovechild of Otessa Moshfegh’s Eileen and Donna Tartt’s The Secret History after a chance meeting at a midnight showing of Heathers . . . Dark but hilarious, quirky yet insightful, and at times just flat out weird, Bunny is the perfect anti-beach read for those of us who spend summer dreading the outside, opting to stay in burning scented candles with our curtains drawn and our white noise machine set to ‘thunder storm.'” —Napa Valley Register
 
“A viciously funny bloodbath . . . Awad gleefully pumps up the novel’s nightmarish quality until the boundary between perception and reality has all but dissolved completely. It’s clear that Awad is having fun here—the proof is in the gore—and her delight is contagious . . . Wickedly sharp . . . it’s a near-perfect realization of a singular vision.” —Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW
 
“Outstanding . . . highly addictive, darkly comedic . . . Awad will have readers racing to find out how it all ends—and they won’t be disappointed once the story reaches its wild finale. This is an enchanting and stunningly bizarre novel.” —Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
 
“[S]harp and utterly bonkers; think Heathers gone to grad school . . . fans of movies like Carrie, Heathers, and the like will rejoice.” —Booklist
 
“The Secret History meets Jennifer’s Body. This brilliant, sharp, weird book skewers the heightened rhetoric of obsessive female friendship in a way I don’t think I’ve ever seen before. I loved it and I couldn’t put it down.” —Kristen Roupenian, author of “Cat Person” and You Know You Want This
 
“Bunny is a curioser Wonderland where vicious, rabidly entitled artists mix hare-brained potions, where sweet bunnies are terrifying swains, and where literature’s newest and sexiest hybrid lurks. Hilarious and creepy with dead-on satire: I cannot think of a new book I like more.” —Lynn Crosbie
 
“Hilarious and subversive, magical and knife-sharp. This novel—a send-up of academia, an astute exploration of class in creative circles, and an ode to the uncanny power of art—confirms Mona Awad as one of our great chroniclers of what it means to be alive right now. Bunny is a stunner.” —Laura van den Berg, author of The Third Hotel
 
“It is not an exaggeration to say that I devoured Bunny—teeth, fur, claws and all. Mona Awad has written a truly delectable novel that is equal parts wit, fancy, and wickedness. Unafraid to challenge some sacrosanct notions about women artists, female friendship, and writing, her book is a compulsively readable testament to the sheer creative force of loneliness and longing.” —Sarah Shun-lien Bynum, author of Miss Hempel Chronicles
