'Witty as Fleabag, psychologically insightful as Sally Rooney' LUCIE WHITEHOUSE

Hera is in her mid-twenties, which seems young to everyone except people in their mid-twenties.

Since leaving school, she has been trying to kick and scream into existence a life she cares about, but with little success so far.

Until she meets Arthur.

He works with her, he is older than her, he is also married. But in her soulless office - the large cold room she feels destined to spend her life in - he is a source of much-needed sustenance.

And though Hera has previously dated women, she soon falls headlong into a workplace romance that will quickly consume her life.

Laugh-out-loud funny, deeply moving and whip smart, Green Dot is a story about the terrible allure of wanting something that promises nothing and the winding, torturous, often hilarious journey we take in deciding who we are and who we want to be.

'A hilarious novel about falling in love with someone you really shouldn't ... I raced through it with increasing delight' DAILY MAIL

'Funny, whip-smart, and unbearably realistic, Gray nails the angst of being young. You'll tear through the pages. Genius' HEAT MAGAZINE
