Waterstones Debut Fiction Book Prize

Waterstones Debut Fiction Book Prize

Waterstones are very excited to reveal Tess Gunty’s The Rabbit Hutch as the winner of the Waterstones Debut Fiction Prize 2022.

“From the moment the reading copies of The Rabbit Hutch arrived, our booksellers were mesmerised by the playfulness and psychological precision of Tess Gunty’s stunning debut novel. At once brilliantly inventive and compulsively readable, The Rabbit Hutch follows a varied and memorable cast of characters and revolves around an affordable housing complex in a declining post-industrial Rust Belt town.

With piercing insight, humour and deep humanity, the novel explores the care system, urbanisation, poverty and gentrification, whilst tracing one girl’s coming of age, with all the odds stacked against her. Wild, funny, and unforgettable, The Rabbit Hutch is, at heart, a love letter to human connection and the hope that can be found in the most unexpected places.”
