The instant Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller
Longlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize
A Times, Guardian, Sunday Times, Telegraph, Red and Cosmopolitan Book of the Year


When Emira is apprehended at a supermarket for 'kidnapping' the white child she's actually babysitting, it sets off an explosive chain of events. Her employer Alix, a feminist blogger with the best of intentions, resolves to make things right.

But Emira herself is aimless, broke and wary of Alix's desire to help. When a surprising connection emerges between the two women, it sends them on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know – about themselves, each other, and the messy dynamics of privilege.
Industry Reviews
'A new literary star'
The Times

'Essential. This year's hit debut'
Guardian

'A biting tale of race and class'
Sunday Times

'I couldn't put this down'
Jojo Moyes

'Bites into the zeitgeist then spits it out with gusto. You really should read it, ASAP'
Stylist

'About power dynamics, race, social commentary, and also why and how we are the woman we are'
Pandora Sykes

'An extraordinarily deft debut, written with wisdom, kindness and sharp humour'
Daily Mail

'A beautiful tale of how we live now'
Elizabeth Day

“What a joy to find a debut novel so good that it leaves you looking forward to the rest of its author's career . . . A tantalisingly plotted tale about the way we live now . . . Such a Fun Age speaks for itself; I suspect it will turn its writer into a star”
The Times

“Will fire off a million debates . . . The pages sing with charisma and humour”
Sunday Times

“Razor-sharp . . . Reid writes with a confidence and verve that produce magnetic prose . . . A cracking debut – charming, authentic and every bit as entertaining as it is calmly, intelligently damning”
Observer

“Smart, fast-paced and beautifully observed, Reid tackles timely themes around race and political correctness with wit and verve”
Mail on Sunday
