About The Manuscript: When author Edith Scott switches genre to write a book about war and men, she bites off more than she can chew. After learning some seriously hard lessons from men in her life who treated her poorly, Edith  decides to write them into the plot. One by one she kills them off with delight. But Edith will never know that real life is dealing with them in a parallel reality too brutal for words

Set in Sydney, Paris, London, Berlin and Kinshasa in the Congo, The Manuscript is Lucy Bloom’s debut novel and has all the Aussie context and whiplash humour of acclaimed television show Rake combined with the style and unexpected violence of Killing Eve. It is a novel about the delicate nature of relationships, the ruthlessness of karma and the blurry line between truth and fiction.

About the author: LUCY BLOOM was born in Africa. She is an international keynote speaker and consulting CEO with a background in advertising and international aid. She has three teenage children and is the author of two other books: a childbirth guide for men and her memoir, Get the Girls Out.
