This is an incredibly timely novel about power, consent and toxic privilege. Told from alternating perspectives, it’s about the trial of a golden-boy British politician accused of a brutal sexual assault on a staffer in his office…with whom he’d just broken off an affair. In her debut novel, former journalist Sarah Vaughan expertly teases apart the strands of a nuanced, complicated narrative that takes us from Oxford University secret societies to the halls of government via the darkest corners of a misogynistic culture we’re nowhere near past in 2018.
