πŸˆβ€β¬› COVER REVEAL: CATSKULL BY MYLE YAN TAY πŸˆβ€β¬› Ram has been ignored and dismissed his entire life. His parents patronise him, his older brother belittles him, his class pretends he doesn’t exist, and he is certain he will fail his impending A-Levels. The only good part of his life is Kass, a fellow outsider he has known since childhood. But when the bruises on Kass from her abusive father get worse and worse, Ram decides to don a mask and frighten him into changing his ways. After his scare tactic goes fatally wrong, the mask he wore calls out to him again to clean the city's filth. Neo-noir thriller meets coming-of-age mystery, catskull explores the violence inherent in an unforgiving city and what it does to the people who inhabit it. It complicates questions of what is right, what is lawful, and who pays the price in the quest for justice. πŸˆβ€β¬› From the playwright of Brown Boys Don't Tell Jokes and co-editor of Brown Is Redacted comes this exciting, adrenaline-packed new thriller. Yan's unique flair for writing complex, layered characters and confronting uncomfortable situations shines through in this debut novel, as readers encounter the various ways that individuals crack under the pressures of an unrelenting education system and an unjust society. πŸˆβ€β¬› "Myle Yan Tay’s debut novel is a sharp, dark look at the education system as a potential site of violence and harm. This is writing that doesn’t flinch and dares the reader to sit with and in discomfort while excavating deeply existential questions about what defines who we are as a society and the individuals who build (or break) it."β€”Pooja Nansi, Author of We Make Spaces Divine πŸˆβ€β¬› Preorder this title by 9th June to receive exclusive preorder perks: β–ͺ️Free book-cover inspired wallpaper β–ͺ️Weekly newsletters featuring a section of the book and behind-the-scenes notes from Myle Yan Tay Keep your eyes peeled for some exciting bundle deals by our bookstore partners, more information coming soon!
