Mackintosh, Sophie

Tagged: Author

(?   -    ) UK author whose first novel, The Water Cure (2018), is set in a Near Future world whose three teenage female protagonists are raised in restrictive ritual-choked Keep on an isolated Island; they understand that men have become dangerously allergic to them. The style of Mackintosh's telling is elevated but sparse in detail (see Mainstream Writers of SF), and verges upon allegory; after three men arrive on the island, nature (as it seems to be understood by all involved) takes its course.
