‘Magnificent and stunning’ Jeff VanderMeer, author of Hummingbird Salamander

‘An immense achievement. Masterful and merciless’ Olivia Sudjic, author of Asylum Road

‘Kleeman is a phenomenon’ Katie Kitamura, author of A Separation

What is really going on?

Patrick Hamlin has come to Hollywood to see his novel be adapted for the screen, but why does he get the feeling that the film project is a smokescreen for something else? Does Cassidy Carter, the troubled starlet due to play the lead, know something he doesn’t? And what is the truth about WAT-R, the synthetic water everyone drinks in LA?

Something New Under the Sun is a bold, strange and alluring exploration of capitalism, corruption and environmental catastrophe.

‘Sun-drenched, sharply observed and swift-moving? strange and new’ Guardian

‘Profoundly affecting – somehow both funny and deeply unsettling’ Rumaan Alam, author of Leave the World Behind

‘Expertly conjures California noir filtered through the ambient and not-so-ambient apocalypse’ Emma Cline, author of The Girls
