Seeing Other People
"Diana Reid will be called the new Sally Rooney – you’re certain of it by the end of page one. By the end of this real, raw and startling novel, you know Reid is the talent to whom every smart young novelist who follows her will be compared – or hope to be." – Meg Mason, author of Sorrow and Bliss
'Likened to an Australian Sally Rooney, Reid has the [same] talent and acerbic wit ..' – iWeekend
'Makes us care as the lies and half-truths pile up... Reid writes with a measured grace.'– The Times
‘Diana Reid’s Seeing Other People is stacked with enthralling heart-in-your-mouth moments as it ripples with betrayals, shame, love and longing.’ – LoveReading
Charlie’s skin was stinging. Not with heat or sweat, but with that intense, body-defining self-consciousness—that sense of being watched. She lowered her eyes from Eleanor’s loving gaze. Her throat taut with tears, she swallowed. ‘You’re a good sister, Eleanor.’
‘Don’t say that.’
After two years of lockdowns, there’s change in the air. Eleanor has just broken up with her boyfriend, Charlie’s career as an actress is starting up again. They’re finally ready to pursue their dreams—relationships, career, family—if only they can work out what it is they really want.
When principles and desires clash, Eleanor and Charlie are forced to ask: where is the line between self-love and selfishness? In all their confusion, mistakes will be made and lies will be told as they reckon with the limits of their own self-awareness.
Seeing Other People is the darkly funny story of two very different sisters, and the summer that stretches their relationship almost to breaking point.
