Product Details


“Frankie Barnet’s propulsive, wholly original novel probes our dark preoccupations and our sources of hope in a seemingly hopeless world. Whether digging into the consequences of climate change, the allure of tech billionaires, the repercussions of cancel culture, or the love/hate dynamics of intimate relationships, Barnet’s singular voice is dazzling and unexpected. She has that rare ability to be at once poignant and genuinely fun, moving and totally hilarious. This book cracked my brain open in the best way possible—I’m obsessed and want everyone to read it!”
—Alexandra Chang, author of Days of Distraction

“What a wild ride—Frankie Barnet has written a fast, funny, witty, chilling first novel that, while ostensibly about a future or alternative reality, summons up the feeling of living in this reality with startling acuity.” 
—George Saunders, Booker Prize-winning author of Lincoln in the Bardo

Mood Swings is a book of vicious wit and glittering, feral prose that lingers like a strange dream. Frankie Barnet possesses an enviable agility with language, zipping between characters with the jubilant chaos of a tilt-a-whirl and unspooling a deceptively devastating meditation on power, morality, and the end of the world. I couldn’t stop reading once I started, and I can’t stop talking about it now that I’ve finished. You’ll want to hold its beating heart to yours; you’ll want to keep it as a pet.”
—Aiden Arata, artist and writer
