The Girls

(2016)
A novel by

 
 
A gripping and dark fictionalised account of life inside the Manson family from one of the most exciting young voices in fiction.

If you’re lost, they’ll find you…

Evie Boyd is fourteen and desperate to be noticed.

It’s the summer of 1969 and restless, empty days stretch ahead of her. Until she sees them. The girls. Hair long and uncombed, jewelry catching the sun. And at their centre, Suzanne, black-haired and beautiful.

If not for Suzanne, she might not have gone. But, intoxicated by her and the life she promises, Evie follows the girls back to the decaying ranch where they live.

Was there a warning? A sign of what was coming? Or did Evie know already that there was no way back?

‘Taut, beautiful and savage, Cline’s novel demands your attention’ Guardian

Genre: Historical

Praise for this book

"Emma Cline has an unparalleled eye for the intricacies of girlhood, turning the stuff of myth into something altogether more intimate. She reminds us that behind so many of our culture’s fables exists a girl: unseen, unheard, angry. This book will break your heart and blow your mind." - Lena Dunham

"Emma Cline’s first novel positively hums with fresh, startling, luminous prose. The Girls announces the arrival of a thrilling new voice in American fiction." - Jennifer Egan

"The Girls is a brilliant and intensely consuming novel - imposing not just for a writer so young, but for any writer, any time." - Richard Ford

"I don’t know which is more amazing, Emma Cline’s understanding of human beings or her mastery of language." - Mark Haddon
