Publisher Description

Soon to be a major motion picture

"Jon Swift + Witches of Eastwick + Kelly 'Get In Trouble' Link + Mean Girls + Creative Writing Degree Hell! No punches pulled, no hilarities dodged, no meme unmangled! O Bunny you are sooo genius!" —Margaret Atwood, via Twitter

"A wild, audacious and ultimately unforgettable novel." Michael Schaub, Los Angeles Times

"Awad is a stone-cold genius." —Ann Bauer, The Washington Post

The Vegetarian
meets Heathers in this darkly funny, seductively strange novel from the acclaimed author of 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl.

"We were just these innocent girls in the night trying to make something beautiful. We nearly died. We very nearly did, didn't we?"

Samantha Heather Mackey couldn't be more of an outsider in her small, highly selective MFA program at New England's Warren University. A scholarship student who prefers the company of her dark imagination to that of most people, she is utterly repelled by the rest of her fiction writing cohort--a clique of unbearably twee rich girls who call each other "Bunny," and seem to move and speak as one.

But everything changes when Samantha receives an invitation to the Bunnies' fabled "Smut Salon," and finds herself inexplicably drawn to their front door--ditching her only friend, Ava, in the process. As Samantha plunges deeper and deeper into the Bunnies' sinister yet saccharine world, beginning to take part in the ritualistic off-campus "Workshop" where they conjure their monstrous creations, the edges of reality begin to blur. Soon, her friendships with Ava and the Bunnies will be brought into deadly collision. 

The spellbinding new novel from one of our most fearless chroniclers of the female experience, Bunny is a down-the-rabbit-hole tale of loneliness and belonging, friendship and desire, and the fantastic and terrible power of the imagination.

Named a Best Book of 2019 by TIME, Vogue, Electric Literature, and The New York Public Library

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“The author wrote the main character so well that I became invested in how she annoyed me so much, with the amount of secrecy and lies she told wrapping her up further and further in mystery that by the end, I’m still not really sure who Samantha is. I had a completely different take from others who have read this book as I was so willfully manipulated by the main character into believing her schizophrenic episodes were real, that I thought this was a pure fantasy book. I’m still not really sure.”

Anxious Face with sweat“This book left me feeling so empty and so whole at the same time. The setting of the book is pretty dark and sad other than when Samantha is with Ava. So the plot twist at the end sort of takes that bit of warmth away. I was completely enthralled the whole read and couldn’t put it down.”
