Overview

A memorable, edgy debut exploring the climate crisis and young women on the verge of transformationThese hip, thoroughly modern stories introduce us to young women grappling with the climate crisis and trying to make decisions that will affect the rest of their lives. Two admirers of Anne Carson decide the path to liberation is to ?become men? and embark on a mythic journey; a graduate student reports on the progressively unhinged unravelling of her climate change research project; a park ranger goes to extreme lengths to save his beloved tortoises; a woman freezes her eggs and then finds she can get glimpses into each potential life. As we travel with our protagonists to places at once familiar and thrillingly strange, Georgina Beaty fearlessly probes the ambitions and confusions of her generation. Wholly unexpected yet wildly entertaining, The Party Is Here daringly announces the arrival of a writer who brings explosive energy and an unforgettable flair all her own.
