Publisher's Summary

Oola is a very different kind of love story.

Oola and Leif meet at a party in East London, two Americans at a loose end. The insouciant music school dropout and aimless young writer fix on one another, grab hands and fall headfirst down love's rabbit hole.

Leif's summer plans soon become Oola's, too, and the pair find themselves mansion-sitting their way across the States, drinking the liquor cabinets dry and emptying the walk-in wardrobes to play dress-up. But when they decide to play house in a Big Sur cabin where the clapboards quiver in the heat, boredom breeds an idea that could extinguish their love and even destroy them both.

This is a love story like no other. A savagely brilliant exploration of what it is to adore, own and inhabit your beloved. Oola takes you to the line and shows you how to cross it.

From an electrifying new voice, this astonishing debut is as juicy and provocative as it is beautiful.

What the Critics Say

"It's the kind of book you want to linger in and never leave; the kind of book that DOES things to you...I adored it." (Emma Jane Unsworth, author of Animals)
"An electrifying debut." (Harpers Bazaar)
"Not since Lolita's Humbert Humbert has a narrator been as unreliable as Leif, and as with reading Nabokov's masterpiece, the experience of reading Oola is one which will leave the reader pondering questions about love, desire and possession long after the last page has been turned." (Nylon)
"A dark, woozy, gorgeously articulate portrait of love, privilege and obsession by a frank, clear and exciting new voice." (Kirstin Innes, author of Fishnet)
"Brittany Newell writes prose unlike anyone I've read before: exquisitely, strangely, and with an electric spark of black humour. I wish 'eerily beautiful' weren't a cliché, because it perfectly describes this debut." (Teddy Wayne, author of Loner)
