About

Overview

Soon to Be an AMC Original Series
An Indie Next Pick — On 14 Best Book Lists

Plum Kettle does her best not to be noticed. When you’re fat, to be noticed is to be judged. She’s working answering fan mail for a teen magazine until her weight-loss surgery. When a mysterious woman begins following her, Plum falls down a rabbit hole into the world of an underground community of women who reject society’s rules. At the same time, a guerilla group begins terrorizing a world that mistreats women, and Plum becomes entangled in a sinister plot. The consequences are explosive.

Customer Reviews

“Hilarious, surreal, and bracingly original, Walker’s ambitious debut avoids moralistic traps to achieve something rarer: a genuinely subversive novel that’s also serious fun . . . Part Fight Club, part feminist manifesto, an offbeat and genre-bending novel that aims high and delivers.”
