Praise

“Intoxicating, sumptuous, and savage, Cursed Bread has a gothic sensibility that is entirely original. In Mackintosh’s hands, the strange, compulsive machinations of desire become luminous and ghastly all at once.”
Alexandra Kleeman, author of Something New Under the Sun

“Vivid and shocking, written with stunning, incantatory prose, Cursed Bread is the kind of book that upends your nervous system.” 
Julia May Jonas, author of Vladimir

Cursed Bread is a gorgeously atmospheric and feverishly compulsive novel about amorphous longings and desires, and the hot shame of wanting more than you deserve.”
Lara Williams, author of Supper Club and The Odyssey

“Sensuous and haunted, like Madame Bovary reworked as a ghost story—an incredible book about desire, pleasure, beauty. Sophie’s fiction always has a gauzy quality, filled with strange, languid images, which rise to a narrative crescendo like clues in a detective novel. She makes it look effortless.
Jo Hamya, author of Three Rooms

“Sophie Mackintosh takes a true story and asks what any of us really know about what is true? Our desires poison us. Shame and longing intertwine. We hide even from ourselves…This novel is subtle and devouring; reading it is like being slowly swallowed by the night.”
Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, author of Starling Days
