'Satire at its best' ELEANOR CATTON

'Outrageous, comic, disturbingly timely' THE GUARDIAN

Bold, darkly funny and brilliantly bizarre, She's a Killer is the story of what happens when a stubborn slacker is forced to confront a very weird world.

Thirty-something Alice has an IQ of 159 (almost a genius) and lives at home with her mother, with whom she communicates only by Morse code.

Meanwhile, the climate is in crisis. Wealthy immigrants are flocking to New Zealand for shelter, stealing land, driving up food prices and taking over.

When Alice meets attractive wealthugee Pablo, she thinks she has found a way out of her dull existence. But then in walks his teenage daughter, Erika, an actual genius with impeccable eye makeup, and Alice finds herself drawn into action of the most radical - and dangerous - kind. Just what is a slacker to do?

Kirsten McDougall is a New Zealand novelist, short story writer and creative writing lecturer. Her 2017 novella Tess was longlisted for the Ockham NZ Book Awards and shortlisted for the Ngaio Marsh Award. She lives in Wellington.
