‘Darkly voyeuristic but with heart – as funny as it is painful and true. We loved it’ GRAZIA
‘I don’t think I’ve ever turned the pages of a book so quickly. So sharp, so tender… truly excellent storytelling’ DAISY BUCHANAN
‘Entertaining and playful but with huge depth, meaning and heart. I raced through it’ EMMA GANNON UNDERBELLY
[n.] singular The soft underside or abdomen of a mammal. An area vulnerable to attack. A dark, hidden part of society. Lo and Dylan are living parallel lives, worlds apart.
Lo is the ultimate middle-class mother, all perfectly polished Instagram posts and armchair activism.
Dylan is just about surviving on a zero-hours telemarketing job from her flat, trying to keep food on the table.
But when they meet at the school gates, they are catapulted into each other’s homes and lives – with devastating consequences . . .
Explosive, sharply humorous and unflinchingly honest, Underbelly slices through the filtered surface of modern women’s lives to expose the dark truth beneath.
Coming August 2021!
