A darkly funny, gothic novel about a lonely graduate student drawn into a clique of rich girls at a New England university.

We call them Bunnies because that is what they call each other. Seriously. Bunny. Samantha Heather Mackey is an outsider in her small, highly selective MFA program at Warren University. In fact, she is utterly repelled by the rest of her fiction writing cohort – a clique of unbearably twee rich girls who call each other 'Bunny'. But then the Bunnies issue her with an invitation and Samantha finds herself inexplicably drawn to their front door, across the threshold, and down their rabbit hole.

Blending sharp satire with fairytale horror, Bunny is a spellbinding trip of a novel from one of fiction's most original new voices.

Industry Reviews
'No punches pulled, no hilarities dodged, no meme unmangled! O Bunny you are sooo genius!' Margaret Atwood.
'Hilarious and subversive, magical and knife-sharp. This novel - a send-up of academia, an astute exploration of class in creative circles, and an ode to the uncanny power of art - confirms Mona Awad as one of our great chroniclers of what it means to be alive right now' Laura van den Berg.
'It is not an exaggeration to say that I devoured Bunny - teeth, fur, claws and all ... A truly delectable novel that is equal parts wit, fancy, and wickedness. Unafraid to challenge some sacrosanct notions about women artists, female friendship, and writing, her book is a compulsively readable testament to the sheer creative force of loneliness and longing' Sarah Shun-lien Bynum.
'One of the most pristine and delightful attacks on popular girls since Clueless. Made me nod and cackle in terrified recognition' Lena Dunham.
'The Secret History meets Jennifer's Body. This brilliant, sharp, weird book skewers the heightened rhetoric of obsessive female friendship in a way I don't think I've ever seen before. I loved it and I couldn't put it down' Kristen Roupenian.
'Awad's outstanding novel follows the highly addictive, darkly comedic tale of sardonic Samantha Mackey, a poetry MFA student at a top-tier New England school ... An enchanting and stunningly bizarre novel' Publishers Weekly.
'A highly original, dark, gothic novel, at once exuberantly weird and extremely funny' The Bookseller.
'To call this a dark comedy undersells the richness of its message, and to say it's a satire misses its realism. Bunny is so sharp it will leave you bloody' Vulture.
'By the time the first head explodes a third of the way through, you wonder how Awad can possibly keep it up. But she's clearly had a blast ... And her sheer panache powers you through the hilarious, hallucinogenic freakery' Daily Mail.
'Throbbing with the kind of satire Heathers would f**k you gently with a chainsaw for, this is one-of-a-kind delicious' Heat.
'A brilliant, utterly unique peek into the dark side of female friendship. Part thriller, part horror, part teen drama, it's like Mean Girls with added menace, and impossible not to relish' Sunday Independent (Dublin).
