The Lost Art of Sinking, Hardback Book

The Lost Art of Sinking Hardback

Description

Some call it the Fainting Game, others Indian Headrush - but it's all the rage amongst the girls of Class 2B. "It makes you go all rushy. You feel like you're falling into a dream." This is the story of Esther, who lives in the Pennines with her father.

Esther is obsessed with experimenting with different ways to pass out: from snorting Daz powder at school to attempted autoasphyxiation in a serviced apartment in north London.

But what happens when you take something too far? And what has Esther's mother, a beautiful dancer wasting away in her bedroom, to do with it all? The Lost Art of Sinking is a dark comedy about losing yourself.

Sensual, funny and exquisitely written, this bold novella introduces a fresh new literary voice in Naomi Booth. Shortlisted for the MMU Novella Award 2014
