Product Details


“[A] quiet triumph…. Anderson’s prose —’s voice — offers a beautiful combination of naivete and wisdom, full of nonhuman puzzlements, off-kilter observations and limpid poetry.”
The Washington Post

“A masterful, gripping debut…While the plot is propulsive and page-turning, The Hierarchies allows Sylvie’s incisive meditations on beauty and human nature to shine through….A fascinating take on artificial intelligence. The Hierarchies deserves to be considered a classic of feminist dystopian fiction.”
Jennie Melamed, author of Gather the Daughters
“Wickedly funny…A total page-turner…. Offers a terrifying and compelling vision of our future world in which desire shifts with and shapes around technology, and bots are more human than people.”
—Katie M. Flynn, author of The Companions

“In The Hierarchies, Anderson has constructed a novel that goes beyond common conversations about what we will do, and what will happen to us, if robot women come into being… It’s a shocking and eye-opening debut, one that has me looking at my coffee maker a little differently.”
Bitch Media

“Fascinating…Anderson gracefully executes the process of’s self-discovery, making her feel real and deeply sympathetic… Readers will be drawn in by’s emotional story.”
Publishers Weekly

“A searing look at women’s roles, how men view them and what it means to be human, this is a book that will resonate with many.” 
The Parkersburg News & Sentinel
