They leave us no choice. A 2018 DEBUT TO WATCH OUT FOR AS SELECTED BY INDEPENDENT, GRAZIA, THE BOOKSELLER, THE RUMPUS 'Life-affirming . . . "Be careful what you wish for" has never been so chilling, or so gripping' Erin Kelly, author of He Said/She Said 'Suicide Club is an original and subversive exploration of health obsessions, consumption, and what makes life worth living.' Independent 'An intriguing premise has us hooked' Grazia ******** What are you doing to help yourself? What are you doing to show that you're worth the resources? In a near-future world, medical technology has progressed far enough that immortality is now within grasp -but only to those who show themselves to be deserving of it. These people are the lifers: the exercisers, yogacisers, green juicers and early nighters. Genetically perfect, healthy and wholesome, one hundred-year-old Lea is the poster girl for lifers, until the day she catches a glimpse of her father in the street, eighty-eight years after their last encounter. While pursuing him, Lea has a brush with death which sparks suspicions. If Lea could be so careless, is she worthy of immortality? Suicide Club wasn't always an activist group. It began as a set of disillusioned lifers, gathering to indulge in forbidden activities: performances of live music, artery-clogging meals, irresponsible orgies. But now they have been branded terrorists and are hunted by the state. And Lea has decided to give them a call. 'The future is here. Let's welcome one of its stars. Talented and ferociously intelligent, Heng has produced a glittering debut.' Joanna Briscoe, author of You ******** 'Glitters, darkly . . . a subversive celebration of life.' Nick Clark Windo, author of The Feed 'I always love novels that can combine powerful writing with massive levels of compassion and heart, and Suicide Club is one such book. Its genre-straddling dark heart can't fail to impress.' James Smythe, author of I Still Dream and The Explorer 'Heng expertly threads a ribbon of dread through her glittering vistas and gleaming characters . . . A complicated and promising debut' Kirkus 'Clever, compelling and wholly believable, this is a superb novel about our most basic desires' NetGalley Book of the Month 'Readers ... will be enthralled by Heng's highly imaginative debut' Library Journal
