Diana Reid will be called the new Sally Rooney - you're certain of it by the end of page one. By the end of this real, raw and startling novel, you know Reid is the talent to whom every smart young novelist who follows her will be compared - or hope to be.
Reid's prose interrogates everything we think we know about love. Heartfelt and unputdownable, this is a remarkably self-assured debut.
It is not enough to say Love & Virtue heralds the arrival of a new literary talent: Reid is intensely incisive and brilliant.
A fierce new voice at just the right moment, shining a light on consent and class with clarity and grace.
I have been chewing on this book for days now. Compelling reading. So well written. Complex. I keep turning it over in my mind and I want to talk about it!
