The Seas

A novel by

Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction Best Book (nominee)

"One of the most distinctive and unforgettable voices I have read in years. This book will linger . . . in your head for a good long time."
Dave Eggers

"The Seas is creepy and poetic, subversive and strangely funny, [and] a phenomenal piece of literature."
Michelle Tea

The narrator of The Seas lives in a tiny, remote, alcoholic, cruel seaside town. An occasional chambermaid, granddaughter to a typesetter, and daughter to a dead man, awkward and brave, wayward and willful, she is in love (unrequited) with an Iraq War veteran thirteen years her senior. She is convinced that she is a mermaid. What she does to ease the pain of growing up lands her in prison. What she does to get out is the stuff of legend.
