- A suspenseful debut novel from one of the most exciting new voices in New Zealand fiction
- 'Sultry, sinister, hilarious and demented, Baby blazes with intelligence and murderous black humour. Heavenly Creatures for a new generation.' – Eleanor Catton, author of Man Booker Prize-winning The Luminaries
- 'Baby, is alive and squirming; a memorable addition to the growing coteries of unapologetic antiheroines (dis)gracing the pages of contemporary fiction.' – Beejay Silcox, The Guardian
