Piglet by Lottie Hazell

$35.00 Inc GST

A claustrophobic novel – like a pot boiling over – Piglet charts the gap between how people see themselves and want to be seen.

Her life is so full, so why is she hungry?

‘A high-wire exploration of control, pleasure and desire’ Chloe Ashby
‘A book that tears at the surface of things to reveal the vast, messy truth of a body with a beating heart’ Catherine Newman

——————-

For Piglet – an unshakable childhood nickname – getting married is her opportunity to reinvent. Together, Kit and Piglet are the picture of domestic bliss – effortless hosts, planning a covetable wedding … But if a life looks too good to be true, it probably is.

Thirteen days before they are due to be married, Kit reveals an awful truth, cracking the fa ade Piglet has created. It has the power to strip her of the life she has so carefully built, so smugly shared. To do something about it would be to self-destruct. But what will it cost her to do nothing?

As the hours count down to their wedding, Piglet is torn between a growing appetite and the desire to follow the recipe, follow the rules. Surely, with her husband, she could be herself again. Wouldn’t it be a waste for everything to curdle now?

Piglet is the searing, unforgettable and original debut which is set to take readers by storm in 2024.

——————-

‘It takes audacity, all kinds of courage to produce a novel as ferocious as Piglet. It made me so hungry’ Lamorna Ash
