Come and celebrate the launch of Oligarchy, the brand new novel from Scarlett Thomas, the bestselling author of The End of Mr. Y’

 

When Tash, daughter of a Russian oligarch, is sent to an English boarding school, she is new to the strange rituals of the girls there. She is thrust into a world of strict pecking orders, eating disorders and Instagram angst.

Then her friend Bianca mysteriously vanishes, and quickly the routines of her dorm-mates seem darker and more alien than ever before.
