'A Mad Max world painted with a finer brush' Elle
'An unforgettable journey into a hauntingly imagined near-future' Ruth Ozeki
'Set in a drought-ravaged Southern California trolled by scavengers, Gold Fame Citrus burns with a dizzying, scorching genius' Vanity Fair

Desert sands have laid waste to the south-west of America. Las Vegas is buried. California - and anyone still there - is stranded. Any way out is severely restricted. But Luz and Ray are not leaving. They survive on water rations, black market fruit and each other's need. Luz needs Ray, and Ray must be needed. But then they cross paths with a mysterious child, who needs them more than anything - and the thirst for a better life begins.

Claire Vaye Watkins's much-anticipated and lauded first novel delivers on her promise as one of America's best new writers.

Gritty and Beautiful

An absolute joy to read!
Watkins conjures a haunting, dried-out world full of chancers, scavengers and grifters.
You’ll get swallowed by this book and love it.
It’s like Atwood and McCarthy lost in a magical desert.
