Product Details


“The cool intensity and strange beauty of Blue Ticket is a wonder – be sure to read everything Sophie Mackintosh writes.”DEBORAH LEVY, author of HOT MILK and THE MAN WHO SAW EVERYTHING
“Strange and luminous, beautifully spare and precise: Sophie Mackintosh constructs her disturbing premise with such skill that I found myself forgetting that the world of Blue Ticket is not (quite) our own. A thrilling and nuanced exploration of what it means to follow one’s own longing to the point of destruction and beyond”ROSIE PRICE, author of WHAT RED WAS

Blue Ticket manages to be both claustrophobic and expansive, dream-like and heart-stoppingly tense. Lushly textured and stunningly written, you will want to languish in its world for a very long time” LARA WILLIAMS, author of SUPPER CLUB

“This book left me breathless – it is gloriously subversive in its exploration of motherhood and desire. I’ll be pressing it on everyone”

Praise for Sophie Mackintosh and The Water Cure:

“A gripping, sinister fable!”MARGARET ATWOOD, via Twitter

“Darkly gratifying, primal and arresting…ingenious and incendiary”—NEW YORKER 

“An extraordinary otherworldly debut… [Mackintosh] is writing the way that Sofia Coppola would shoot the end of the world: Everything is luminous.”THE GUARDIAN

“Sensational…Mackintosh’s taut novel turns a keen, unsparing eye on violence, patriarchy, and desire.”ESQUIRE

 ”[A] chilling, beautifully written novel…the tautness and tension of the writing are staggering.”Judges Panel Citation, MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2018

“I loved this book. It rushes you through to the end on a tide of tension and closely held panic. Eerie, beautiful, electric.”DAISY JOHNSON, author of EVERYTHING UNDER

“Sophie Mackintosh casts an exquisite, irresistible spell…”
