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


"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

Expressionless Face“if I had to describe this book in one sentence, it would probably be "disturbing but in a good way." reading this book felt like a fever dream. honestly I felt like I was high 24/7. personally, the beginning of the book was very interesting and I was immediately hooked, but the more I read the more I didn't understand what was happening. someone should explain this book to me like I'm 5. so yeah, I understood nothing of what I read, but at the same I understood something. also, I would've loved seeing more of the bunny squad, since it felt more like samantha's existential life crisis and nothing else. the bunny squad was so manipulative that even I sometimes had trouble understanding what was real or not. and lastly, could not believe that they were mature 25 year olds, since to me they felt like a bunch of teenagers.”

Expressionless Face“The book talks about how bad pretentious and needlessly “dark” writing is yet itself is overly pretentious and needlessly “dark” and “edgy” …oh the irony”
