Foyles Notes

Signed First Edition


Calla, 14 years old. Alone, out on the road. No fixed destination; only the necessity to find a place of her own. As her eyes dart left and right, every muscle primed for flight, she reminds herself that she’s been spared. The ticket in the locket around her neck is of deep cobalt–the colour of freedom from child rearing.

Calla, 18 years later. On the road once more. This time, they gave her a knife and a gun, and her destination, if elusive, is clear: the border. A hand to her stomach, to the unsuspecting life growing there, and she remembers the motherly urge that brought her here–she’s made her choice.

Welcome to the haunting world of Blue Ticket, the second novel from Sophie Mackintosh, author of the Man Booker-longlisted The Water Cure. A chilling reproductive dystopia with a distinctive voice, it weaves the gripping tale of one woman’s battle for self-determination in a world where female reproductive rights are determined by lottery. Her rebellion will force her into exile–where she’ll learn the value and dangers of trust, and the insidious grip of patriarchal rule. It’s a dark speculative creation, a feminist warning and an escape thriller all at once, ramping up the tension to a devastating conclusion.

From within an eerie, enthralling atmosphere, a terrifying dystopian society emerges–undefined, unpredictable, magnetic. But it’s in the embodied lives of its victims that it shows its true colours, and in the veracity of Calla’s rage, fear and hope Blue Ticket aligns itself with classics such as The Handmaid’s Tale and Woman on the Edge of Time. As the outstanding new offering from an acclaimed young author, Blue Ticket is unmissable; as an addition to the canon of feminist dystopias, it’s essential.
