GRIND SPARK

Longlisted for the Bath Novel Award 2014, Grind Spark is a near-future dystopian novel about growing up in the years leading up to the end of the world. It’s about pretending to be the perfect family. It’s about whether you want to survive.

“Forget the well-trodden paths of post-apocalypse humanity and welcome in a world of genetic engineering, anything-goes governance, religious zeal and apathetic clock-watchers.”

“took my breath and held it for the duration”
