In an unnamed city, where to be interesting is dangerous, an eighteen-year-old woman has attracted the unwanted and unavoidable attention of a powerful and frightening older man, 'Milkman'.

“A triumph of voice . . . darkly hilarious.”
- Justine Jordan, Guardian BOOKS OF THE YEAR
“The narrator of Milkman disrupts the status quo not through being political, heroic or violently opposed, but because she is original, funny, disarmingly oblique and unique: different. The same can be said of this book.”
- Claire Kilroy, Guardian
