About the Book

A darkly funny, gothic novel about a lonely graduate student drawn into a clique of rich girls at a New England university.

'No punches pulled, no hilarities dodged, no meme unmangled. O Bunny you are sooo genius!' MARGARET ATWOOD. Samantha Heather Mackey couldn't be more of an outsider in her small, highly selective MFA program at New England's Warren University. A scholarship student who prefers the company of her dark imagination to that of most people, she is utterly repelled by the rest of her fiction writing cohort – a clique of unbearably twee rich girls who call each other 'Bunny', and are often found entangled in a group hug so tight they become one. But everything changes when Samantha receives an invitation to the Bunnies' fabled 'Smut Salon', and finds herself inexplicably drawn to their front door. As Samantha plunges deeper and deeper into the sinister yet saccharine world of the Bunnies, the boundary between fiction and reality begins to blur. A spellbinding, down-the-rabbit-hole tale of loneliness and belonging, creativity and agency, and friendship and desire, Bunny is the dazzlingly original second book from the author of 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl . 'Brilliant, sharp, weird ... I loved it and couldn't put it down' KRISTEN ROUPENIAN. 'Made me nod and cackle in terrified recognition' LENA DUNHAM. 'Hilarious and subversive, magical and knife-sharp' LAURA VAN DEN BERG. 'Equal parts wit, fancy, and wickedness' SARAH SHUN-LIEN BYNUM. 'Enchanting and stunningly bizarre' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY .
