    Om Exciting Times

    'Droll, shrewd and unafraid - a winning debut' Hilary Mantel, author of Wolf Hall 'Fiercely intelligent, brutally funny' Nathan Filer, author of The Shock of the Fall 'Witty, compelling and with a razor-sharp social commentary. I guzzled it' Pandora Sykes 'Read if you like Animals by Emma Jane Unsworth, Trick Mirror by Jia Tolentino, The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath' Sunday Times 'More than lives up to the hype ... Likely to fill the Sally-Rooney-shaped hole in many readers lives' Irish Times One of the observer's 10 best debut novelists of 2020 Naoise Dolan explodes onto the scene with Exciting Times, a slyly humorous and scorchingly smart modern love story about three cynics in Hong Kong When you leave Ireland aged 22 to spend your parents' money, it's called a gap year. When Ava leaves Ireland aged 22 to make her own money, she's not sure what to call it, but it involves: - a badly-paid job in Hong Kong, teaching English grammar to rich children; - Julian, who likes to spend money on Ava and lets her move into his guest room; - Edith, who Ava meets while Julian is out of town and actually listens to her when she talks; - money, love, cynicism, unspoken feelings and unlikely connections. Exciting times ensue.


    Echoes of Sally Rooney's Conversations with Friends resound in this exacting debut novel Among the most hotly tipped debut authors for 2020 2020 is set to be a huge year for Naoise Dolan We're really, um, excited about this sharp, smart debut Half Sally Rooney love triangle, half glitzy Crazy Rich Asians high living - and guaranteed to please Fiercely intelligent, brutally funny and written with such heart, Exciting Times announces an impressive new voice in literature. Devastatingly perceptive and articulate in every sentence. Whenever I wasn't reading it I was worrying about the characters as if they were people I knew. It's a joy to encounter a book so compulsively readable and painfully funny while simultaneously deeply insightful on love, on sexuality, on social class, on their links as terribly inextricable in the 21st century as they ever were. Dolan is a major talent and this is a formidable debut This is icily brilliant stuff. A poised and surgical examination of class, sex, language and self-making, with some flat-out enviable jokes Exciting Times, is more caustic and cynical than Rooney's writing, if just as clever ... All the fretting over love and class could be compared to Austen or Wharton, but her light treatment of bisexuality and polyamory is utterly 2020 Exciting Times, which was acquired in a seven-way bidding war, more than lives up to the hype ... It teems with insight around class, race, language and sexuality. Likely to fill the Sally-Rooney-shaped hole in many readers' lives.
