The New Wilderness


Shortlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize

By Diane Cook


Bea’s five-year-old daughter, Agnes, is wasting away, ravaged by the smog and pollution of the overdeveloped, overpopulated metropolis they call home. Bea knows she cannot stay in the city, but there is only one alternative – The Wilderness State. This vast expanse of unwelcoming, untamed land is untouched by mankind. Until now.

Somewhere between a science experiment and a refugee, Bea and Agnes slowly learn how to live in this unpredictable, often dangerous land. But as Agnes embraces this radically free new existence, Bea realises that her bond with her daughter will be tested in ways she could never have foreseen.
