"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 seem to move and speak as 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 Bunnies' sinister yet saccharine world,
beginning to take part in the ritualistic off-campus
"Workshop" where they conjure their monstrous creations, the
edges of reality begin to blur. Soon, her friendships with
Ava and the Bunnies will be brought into deadly collision.
The spellbinding new novel from one of our most fearless
chroniclers of the female experience, Bunny is a
down-the-rabbit-hole tale of loneliness and belonging,
friendship and desire, and the fantastic and terrible power
of the imagination.
