The Vegetarian meets Heathers in this darkly funny, seductively strange novel about a lonely graduate student drawn into a clique of rich girls.
'We were just these innocent girls in the night trying to make something beautiful. We nearly died. We very nearly did, didn't we?'
Samantha Heather Mackey couldn't be more of an outsider in her small, highly selective MFA program at New England's Warren University. A scholarship student who prefers the company of her dark imagination to that of most people, she is utterly repelled by the rest of her fiction writing cohort a clique of unbearably twee rich girls who call each other 'Bunny', and are often found entangled in a group hug so tight they become one.
But everything changes when Samantha receives an invitation to the Bunnies' fabled 'Smut Salon', and finds herself inexplicably drawn to their front door ditching her only friend, Ava, in the process. As Samantha plunges deeper and deeper into the sinister yet saccharine world of the Bunnies, the edges of reality begin to blur, and her friendships with Ava and the Bunnies are brought into deadly collision.
A spellbinding, down-the-rabbit-hole tale of loneliness and belonging, creativity and agency, and friendship and desire, Bunny is the dazzlingly original second book from the author of 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl.

'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
'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
A highly original, dark, gothic novel, at once exuberantly weird and extremely funny.
