At this year’s Oscars ceremony, Jimmy Kimmel joked ‘we will always remember this year as the year men screwed up so badly, women started dating fish’. He was talking about Oscar-winning film The Shape of Water – but could just as easily have been talking about The Pisces, Melissa Broder’s profoundly modern, deeply disturbed and darkly comic novel about a heartbroken woman who over one summer falls in dangerous, ecstatic love… with a merman.
The Pisces is hotly tipped as a must-read of 2018, and we can guarantee this twisted modern fairytale is unlike anything else you’ve read! Melissa Broder is the genius behind the viral Twitter account @sosadtoday, and her first novel is just as hilarious and profound as you’d expect.
The Pisces doesn’t publish until May 2018, but we love it so much we are giving you the chance to read it before anyone else. One lucky winner will also get a £50 Odeon cinema card, in case you haven’t seen The Shape of Water yet – and a pair of fetching fish-shaped bookends!
