Consent Synopsis

LONGLISTED FOR THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 'Blistering... The most truthful exploration of sisterhood I have enjoyed since Fleabag' The Times 'So, so clever and so concise yet just goes into the most profound issues in such depth' Vick Hope, Women's Prize for Fiction Judge 2021 '[A] gripping read about sisters, guilt, grief and revenge... I couldn't put it down.' Daily Mail 'Compelling... A brave, even dangerous book.' Preti Taneja, author of We That Are Young Saskia and Jenny are twins, alike in appearance only: Saskia has a single-minded focus on her studies, while Jenny is glamorous, thrill-seeking and capricious. Still, when Jenny is severely injured in an accident, Saskia puts her life on hold for her sister. Sara and Mattie are sisters with another difficult dynamic: Mattie needs almost full-time care, while Sara loves nothing more than fine wines, perfumes and expensive clothing, and leaves home at the first opportunity. But when their mother dies, Sara must move Mattie in with her. Gradually, Sara and Saskia learn that both their sisters' lives, and indeed their own, have been altered by the devastating actions of one man... In turns razor-sharp, provocative and precise, Consent is a blistering novel of sisters and their knotty relationships, of predatory men and sexual power, of retribution and the thrilling possibilities of revenge. LONGLISTED FOR THE SCOTIABANK GILLER PRIZE
