About this deal

Truly joyful and uplifting . . . this is a big-hearted story about what really matters in life: friends, family and love' - LUCY DIAMOND, author ofAnything Could Happen Wild Things feels fresh and exciting - a touching and realistic read with wonderful characters . I love Laura's writing ― KATIE FFORDE, author of ONE ENCHANTED EVENING Kay spins a compelling story about creating queer family and falling in love with your best friend, while keeping a light tone throughout. Readers who want a true romantic comedy and enjoy the distinctly deadpan narrative voices of Dodie Smith’s I Capture the Castle or Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones’s Diary will enjoy Kay’s U.S. debut.” Wild Things filled my heart all the way up . A hilarious story of queer friendship, queer longing, and queer triumph ― TJ Alexander, author of CHEF'S KISS Wild Things really has everything I love in contemporary fiction. A beautiful story of yearning, bravery, different kinds of family . . . my heart was with El the whole time * Lizzie Huxley-Jones, author of MAKE YOU MINE THIS CHRISTMAS *

After a New Year’s resolution to ‘Be More Wild’, El is soon in possession of one (small) tattoo, one (bad) hangover and memories of one (very disappointing) threesome. . . but she’s trying and surely it can only get better?Heady, giddy, and outrageously flirty, Wild Things is the perfect escapist queer romcom for anyone longing to move to the country with their best friends * Lily Lindon, author of DOUBLE BOOKED * Wild Things feels fresh and exciting—a touching and realistic read with wonderful characters. I love Laura Kay’s writing.” That is, in broad strokes, the plot. Eleanor, our protagonist, and her three friends jointly buy a house a little ways out from London, on something of a whim. Those friends include Ray, who El has a crush on, Jamie, who works at the same company as Ray and Jamie, and Will, Ray’s flatmate, who had intended to buy the house with his girlfriend until she broke it off with him. A regular little found family! A spirited whirl through the agony and the ecstasy of a queer crush, and the vital friendships that keep us sane

The Split has everything I love in a novel. It’s hilariously funny, it’s so uplifting, and its characters are irresistibly loveable’ Beth O’Leary Every few months, my pandemic pod of queer nerds jokes about leaving Brooklyn behind to build a rural commune that we lovingly refer to as Mount Gay, so I was the ideal audience for this book. . . . While there is a slow burn romance, the real love story is among this quartet [of friends], as they figure out how to build a home together.” Will a year of wild things make these friends into lovers? The perfect will-they-won’t-they romance from the author of The Split and Tell Me Everything Overall, I liked this a lot. It has me interested in Kay’s previous work and I will most definitely be reading whatever she puts out next. Heady, giddy, and outrageously flirty , Wild Things is the perfect escapist queer romcom for anyone longing to move to the country with their best friends ― Lily Lindon, author of DOUBLE BOOKEDBuoyant, charming, delectably wistful, and quietly earnest—not to mention, British enough to beguile even the subset of Americans who cuddle up to The Great British Bake Off on a Sunday afternoon.”—Casey McQuiston, The New York Times Wild Things is one of my favourite books of 2023. It captures the pleasure/pain of a huge, heartfelt crush, and it also beautifully evokes the warmth of a loving community. I would love to stop by 'the commune' for a cup of tea with them all. A totally gorgeous read * Beth O'Leary, author of THE NO-SHOW *
