Jane Rogers

Its cunningly drawn characters and riveting imaginative and prescient of a dystopic destiny fraught with tough ethical offerings will make The testomony of Jessie Lamb an immediate favourite for lovers of Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never allow Me Go, Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, Suzanne Collins’s The starvation Games, and Brian okay.

“The novel doesn't organize an complex apocalypse, yet astringently strips away the smears hiding the apocalypses we actually face. Like Jessie’s, it's a small, calm voice of cause in a nonsensical world.” —The Independent
