The Water Cure: Sophie Mackintosh and Katherine Angel

Sophie Mackintosh’s powerful dystopian debut novel The Water Cure (Hamish Hamilton) comes with some dazzling endorsements. ‘Eerie, electric, beautiful’, Daisy Johnson writes, ‘It rushes you through to the end on a tide of tension and closely held panic. I loved this book’. Katherine Angel, with whom Sophie was in conversation at the Bookshop, described it as 'immensely assured, calmly devastating.’ Sophie Mackintosh was the 2016 winner of The White Review Short Story Prize, and her writing has appeared in Granta and TANK magazines. Katherine Angel’s Unmastered was published by Penguin in 2012.
