Product Details


“Thought-provoking … [Angel’s] jargon-free prose and nuanced readings of popular culture and postmodern theory enlighten. Readers will value this lively and incisive inquiry into the sexual dynamics of the #MeToo era.”
Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

“An ardent, rigorous, nuanced investigation into the question of consent, at once illuminating and empowering. A truly vital guide to navigating the difficult waters of 21st century desire.”
—Olivia Laing, author of Funny Weather

“One of our most daring, exciting and nuanced writers on the complexities of female desire, pleasure, autonomy and imagination.”
—Deborah Levy, author of The Cost of Living

“A provocative counterargument to recent feminist dogma … Angel raises intriguing questions about commonly accepted assumptions, and she offers reassurance to female readers.”
Kirkus Reviews

“[Tomorrow Sex Will Be Good Again] takes a taboo topic and removes the stigma by providing facts. Its titular refrain advocates for a better tomorrow.”
—Ashley Holstrom, Foreword Reviews

“[Angel] writes about complex questions with such clarity and elegance, and amid all the polarised spats that currently pass for considered debate, her work is a breath of fresh air. [Tomorrow Sex Will Be Good Again] is a provocative but clear-sighted analysis of female sexuality in the wake of #MeToo … I’d urge anyone who cares about sexual ethics to read it.”
—Caroline Sanderson, Bookseller (“Editor’s Choice”)

—Charlotte Higgins, Guardian

“[A] bible of modern sexuality and consent that all men and women should be reading.”
Evening Standard

“She is reaching towards something else: a world where desire does not have to be known and fixed in advance to protect people from violence.”
—Hettie O’Brien, Guardian

“Tenderly inflected and meticulously argued, Tomorrow Sex Will Be Good Again should be required reading.”
New Internationalist (five-starred review)

“A clear-eyed intervention in the crossfire of post-#MeToo sexual politics.”
TANK Magazine

“Voyeuristically fascinating … Angel dares to suggest that consent is not sexy … we should be aiming for something more complex.”
—Anna Leszkiewicz, New Statesman

“Offers new ways of understanding the complexity of sexual relations … fresh and provoking.”
The F-Word

“Exquisite … A breathtaking, brilliant invitation not to turn away from complexity and vulnerability.”
—Hannah Dawson, editor of The Penguin Book of Feminist Writing

“This nonfiction tour-de-force is a must-read for anyone interested in exploring themes of consent, power, sex, and the Me Too movement. This is the kind of book that seeks not to create dichotomous binaries, but to complicate the narrative.”
—Rachel Krantz, The Millions

“Eloquent and lucid.”
—Celia Walden, Telegraph

“Succinct and thought-provoking.”
—Stephanie Merritt, Observer

Tomorrow Sex Will Be Good Again offers readers a blend of cultural criticism and provocative theory.”
—Tobias Carroll, InsideHook

“Intriguing, philosophical.”
—Laura Miller, Slate

“One of the smartest, most nuanced and thought-provoking books I’ve read about sex in the post-#MeToo era.”
—Moya Crockett, Stylist

“[Angel] is right—consent as a ‘yes’/‘no’ dichotomy cannot be everything we want it to be. We must recognise that language cannot say everything, especially for women, who have not historically been given the chance to shape it according to their own needs and desires.”
