Quotes

<b>PRAISE FOR <i>A SONG FOR A NEW DAY</i></b>: <br>
'Sarah Pinsker has written a wonderful epic about music, community, and rediscovering the things that make us human' Charlie Jane Anders, author of <i>All the Birds in the Sky</i>. <br>
'The combination of technothriller, rock-and-roll novel, and rebellion in a dystopian world make for a riveting, sweet, funny, angry, gorgeous read' Cory Doctorow, author of <i>Walkaway</i>. <br>
'A compelling book about the importance of music – and any sort of art – in a world where it seems like the least essential thing. This is an expertly drawn post-catastrophe world peopled by compassionately written characters' Ann Leckie, author of <i>Ancillary Mercy</i>. <br>
'An all-too plausible version of the apocalypse, rendered in such compelling prose that you won't be able to put it down ... A lively and hopeful look at how community and music and life goes on even in the middle of dark days and malevolent corporate shenanigans' Kelly Link, author of <i>Get it Trouble</i>. <br>
'Woven through Pinsker's meticulously crafted future of technology-enabled isolation and corporate-consumerist powerlessness is a stirring anthem against the politics of fear. A dazzling tale told in multiple voices, with not a single note out of place. This is the lyrical protest song that we have always needed, perhaps more so now than ever' Ken Liu, author of <i>Grace of Kings</i>.
