'Fast paced and thrilling, violent and nightmarish and grief-stricken, but also tender and wildly moving.' - Kristen Arnett

Kayleigh needs money. That’s why she takes a job as a content moderator for a social media platform whose name she isn’t allowed to mention. Her job: reviewing offensive videos and pictures, rants and conspiracy theories, and deciding which need to be removed. It’s gruelling work. Kayleigh and her colleagues spend all day watching horrors and hate on their screens, evaluating them with the platform’s ever-changing moderating guidelines.

Yet Kayleigh is good at her job, and in her colleagues she finds a group of friends, even a new girlfriend ― and for the first time in her life, Kayleigh’s future seems bright. But soon the job seems to change them all, shifting their worlds in alarming ways.

But when her colleagues begin to break down; when Sigrid, her new girlfriend, grows increasingly distant and fragile; when her friends start espousing the very conspiracy theories they’re meant to be evaluating; Kayleigh begins to wonder if the job may be too much for them. She’s still totally fine, though – or is she?

We Had To Remove This Post by Hanna Bervoets is a chilling, powerful and gripping story about what – or who – determines how we see the world.

"This novel gives us an acid glimpse into a new form of labour existing today, a job that extracts an immeasurable psychic toll. Fascinating and disturbing."
Ling Ma, author of Severance

"We Had To Remove This Post is one of the most fascinating books I’ve read in years. Hanna Bervoets has created an astonishing and compelling cast of characters, drawn together through circumstance, separated by the same. The novel is fast paced and thrilling, violent and nightmarish and grief-stricken, but also tender and wildly moving. A brilliant peek behind the curtains at what happens when we put our trust in social media. Believe me when I say you’ve never read anything like it."
Kristen Arnett, author of Mostly Dead Things and With Teeth
