RELEASE DATE - 3 FEBRUARY 2022

Introduced by Carmen Maria Machado, the radical dystopian classic, lost for forty years: in a nightmarish Britain, THEY are coming closer.

'A creepily prescient tale ... Insidiously horrifying!' Margaret Atwood

'A masterpiece of creeping dread.' Emily St. John Mandel

'Crystalline ... The signature of an enchantress.' Edna O'Brien

'Lush, hypnotic, compulsive ... A reminder of where groupthink leads.' Eimear McBride

'A masterwork of English pastoral horror: eerie and bewitching.' Claire-Louise Bennett

'I'm pretty wild about this paranoid, terrifying 1977 masterpiece.' Lauren Groff

This is Britain: but not as we know it. THEY are coming closer . . .

THEY begin with a dead dog, shadowy footsteps, confiscated books. Soon the National Gallery is purged; eerie towers survey the coast; savage mobs stalk the countryside destroying artworks - and those who resist.

THEY capture dissidents - writers, painters, musicians, even the unmarried and childless - in military sweeps, 'curing' these subversives of individual identity.

Survivors gather together as cultural refugees, preserving their crafts, creating, loving and remembering. But THEY make it easier to forget ...

Lost for over forty years, Kay Dick's They (1977) is a rediscovered dystopian masterpiece of art under attack: a cry from the soul against censorship, a radical celebration of non-conformity - and a warning.

"Queer, English, a masterpiece."
Hilton Als

"Kay Dick's mind is a delicate instrument, aware, sensitive, intelligent, alive to every shade of feeling and sensation."
L.P. Hartley ― Sunday Times

"Strong stuff, beautifully written, to make [us] look behind [in] fear and dread when walking down a leafy lane."
The Times

"The dream setting [of They] is cleverly handled, with its shifts of scene and time and its underlying air of menace."
Sunday Telegraph
