‘Funny, merciless, brilliant . . . I loved it.’ CURTIS SITTENFELD

Seamus, Fyodor, Ivan, Noah and Fatima are running out of time to decide on their futures, in the new novel from the Booker-shortlisted author of Real Life.

In a university town, a circle of lovers and friends navigate tangled webs of connection while they try to work out what they want, and who they are.

As they test their own desires in a series of relationships, these young men and women ask themselves and each other: what is the right thing to stake a life on? Work, love, money, dance, poetry? And what does true connection look like, in an age of precarity?
