WHAT A WICKED GAME YOU PLAYED
Book Launch for Eliza Robertson's Demi-Gods > SEPTEMBER 11
Hamish Hamilton and Type Books invite you to celebrate the Toronto launch of the highly anticipated debut novel from Commonwealth Short Story Prize winner Eliza Robertson, Demi-Gods. John Boyne calls it "unsettling and compulsive," which is a pretty close comparison to television's Riverdale.
Unfolding between the wild freedoms of British Columbia and the glittering beaches of California, Demi-Gods explores a girl’s attempt to forge a path of her own choosing in a world where female independence is suspect.
