Insatiable: A frank, funny account of 21st-century lust' Independent

Daisy Buchanan

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Adult & contemporary romance

One of 2021's most exciting launches is now coming in paperback. Insatiable is award-winning journalist and writer Daisy Buchanan's debut novel and she is a talent to watch.

'Extremely funny, touching and wonderfully refreshing on women and sexual desire' Marian Keyes

'As filthy as it is funny, you won't be able to put it down' Dolly Alderton Stuck in a dead-end job, broken-hearted, broke and estranged from her best friend: Violet's life is nothing like she thought it would be. She wants more - better friends, better sex, a better job - and she wants it now.

So, when Lottie - who looks like the woman Violet wants to be when she grows up - offers Violet the chance to join her exciting start-up, she bites. Only it soon becomes clear that Lottie and her husband Simon are not only inviting Violet into their company, they are also inviting her into their lives.

Seduced by their townhouse, their expensive candles and their Friday-night sex parties, Violet cannot tear herself away from Lottie, Simon or their friends. But is this really the more Violet yearns for? Will it grant her the satisfaction she is so desperately seeking?

Insatiable is about women and desire - lust, longing and the need to be loved. It is a story about being unable to tell whether you are running towards your future or simply running away from your past. The result is at once tender and sad, funny and hopeful.

Praise for Insatiable: A frank, funny account of 21st-century lust' Independent

  • British journalist Daisy Buchanan has somehow managed to distinguish herself from the pack, with a novel that's both smoothly observant and brilliantly, giddily filthy - Irish Times

  • Filthy, funny, and raw, Insatiable is utterly addictive

  • A piercing insight into the unreal demands modern women place on themselves and told with real humour and energy, we love this book so much - Stylist

  • I raced through this funny, filthy and utterly compelling debut about female sexuality, ambition and vulnerability... I'm still thinking about it long after turning the final page. - Daily Mail

  • I'd call Insatiable Jilly Cooper for the Instagram generation, but that wouldn't do this book justice

  • Insatiable is a story about loneliness and trying to fit in, about our desire to be loved and included, how it's easy to confuse being wanted with being used. It'll draw people in with the shagging, but people will stay because they're rooting for Violet. - Evening Standard

  • You will be intoxicated by this witty and honest exploration of female desire - Elle

  • A raucous unravelling of female desire and bodily pleasures, in all their maddening complexity
