"The perfect book to read with your friends." (Bustle)

"The debut novel of the season, The Other's Gold reads like an origin story for the women of Big Little Lies." (Elle)

An insightful and sparkling novel that opens on a college campus and follows the friendship of four women across life-defining turning points

Assigned to the same suite during their freshman year at Quincy-Hawthorn College, Lainey, Ji Sun, Alice, and Margaret quickly become inseparable. The leafy green campus they move through together, the idyllic window seat they share in their suite, and the passion and ferocity that school and independence awakens in them ignites an all-encompassing love with one another. But they soon find their bonds - forged in joy, and fused by fear - must weather threats that originate from beyond the dark forests of their childhoods, and come at them from institutions, from one another, and ultimately, from within themselves.

The Other's Gold follows the four friends as each makes a terrible mistake, moving from their wild college days to their more feral days as new parents. With one part devoted to each mistake - the Accident, the Accusation, the Kiss, and the Bite - this complex yet compulsively listenable debut interrogates the way that growing up forces our friendships to evolve as the women discover what they and their loved ones are capable of, and capable of forgiving. A joyful, big-hearted audiobook that perfectly evokes the bittersweet experience of falling in love with friendship, the experiences of Lainey, Ji Sun, Alice, and Margaret are at once achingly familiar and yet shine with a brilliance and depth all their own.

Genre: Literary Fiction

Praise for this book

"A gorgeous book, compulsively readable, so full of texture and heartache, so bruised and beautiful." - Jesmyn Ward
