Product Details


Such a Fun Age is a startling, razor-sharp debut. Kiley Reid has written a book with no easy answers, instead, filling her story with delicious gray areas and flawed points of view. It’s both wildly fun and breathtakingly wise, deftly and confidently confronting issues of race, class, and privilege. I have to admit, I’m in awe.”—Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Daisy Jones & the Six

“Kiley Reid’s propulsive, page-turning book is full of complex characters and even more complex truths. This is a bullseye of a debut.”—Emma Straub, author of Modern Lovers

“In Such a Fun Age, Emira Tucker’s relationships with her employer and new boyfriend culminate in an unexpected, combustible triangle so ingeniously plotted and observed that my heart pounded as though I was reading a thriller. This is not a world of easy answers but one in which intentions don’t match actions and expectations don’t match consequences, where it is possible to mean something partly good and do something mostly bad. The result is both unsparing and compassionate, impossible to read without wincing in recognition—and questioning yourself. Such a Fun Age is nothing short of brilliant, and Kiley Reid is the writer we need now.”—Chloe Benjamin, author of The Immortalists
“Such a Fun Age is such a fabulous book–a crisp, wry, and insightful novel about class, race, and relationships. Kiley Reid is a gifted young writer with a generosity that makes her keen social eye that much funnier and sharper.”—Jess Walter, author of Beautiful Ruins 

“Kiley Reid’s witty debut asks complicated questions around race, domestic work, and the transactional nature of each.”—Nafissa Thompson-Spires, author of Heads of the Colored People

“Gripping, substantive, complicated, compelling, and just plain true….These characters laid claim to me, and their stories became important to me in the way art does that to its readers, viewers, listeners….Such a fantastic, serious, and, I should say, fun read.”—Paul Harding, author of Tinkers

Such a Fun Age is such a fresh voice. It’s a unique, honest portrayal of what it’s like to be a black woman in America today. Kiley Reid has delivered a poignant novel that could not be more necessary.”—Lena Waithe
