In the early '70s a glamorous couple known as Evie/Stevie appear out of nowhere on the isolated concrete campus of a new university. To a group of teenagers experimenting with radical ideas they seem blown back from the future, unsettling everything and uncovering covert desires. But the flamboyant self-expression hides deep anxieties. For Adele, with the most to conceal, Evie/Stevie become a lifelong obsession.
"'My only complaint? I fear I may not read a better book all year" (
Evening Standard )
"Ambitious . . . Like the best novels, it makes you examine your own moral compass alongside that of its characters" ( Observer)

Flawed and uneven, but brilliant in parts
