"Daisy Johnson's story collection Fen was unanimously beloved... firmly situating her among the UK's most exciting new voices." -- Marta Bausells * Elle * "Just finished rereading Daisy Johnson's story collection Fen. Just as powerful and beautiful and dark and strange as the first time. One of my favourite books of all time." -- Jeff Vandermeer "Johnson's heady broth of folklore, female sexuality and fenland landscape reads like a mix of Graham Swift and Angela Carter...
