Product Details


“Rosie Price has a dazzling gift for rendering the mechanisms of power and privilege viscerally real. . . . This is a book that succeeds in prying open our cultural moment and laying it bare for scrutiny.”—Alexandra Kleeman, author of You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine

“One of the best books I’ve ever read about female rage and transgression . . . . at once incredibly timely and one for the ages. A stealthily brilliant debut that people will be talking about for a long time.”—Lisa Gabriele, author of The Winters
A startling, powerful story of trauma, friendship, art, and privilege that shows how a single event can haunt us for years to come.”—Edan Lepucki, author of California and Woman No 17

“A dazzling debut . . . finely attuned to the sometimes dark and complicated nuances of human behavior and emotion.”Adroit Journal

“So assured, so confident in its voice, so skilful in its plotting and characterisation that it seems like the work of a seasoned author . . . What Red Was introduces an exciting new voice to fiction.”—The Guardian (UK)

“This powerful novel handles its explosive plot with an admirable delicacy and offers an emotional portrait of friendship.”Publishers Weekly  

“A young writer with a voice as fresh as new paint.”The Times (UK)
