New Publication: Seed by Joanna Walsh


No Alibis Press is delighted to announce that our next publication will be Seed by Joanna Walsh.

Originally published as a digital novella, No Alibis Press will be producing a print version of Seed in both standard and limited editions. Keep an eye out for us in June 2021!

'By resisting representational narrative, this book works like a 3D printer. Language is the raw material, laid down layer by layer, until the solid object of the story is formed. Non-conformist, hypnotic, incantatory, and satisfyingly strange.' Jeanette Winterson

'Seed is Joanna Walsh's best book, and that's saying something.' Isabel Waidner, author of Sterling Karat Gold.

'Seed is a marvel. Each page Joanna Walsh writes shines with such vividness and depth, painting a distinct vision that compels the reader to gaze again, to gaze ever deeper.' Doireann Ní Ghríofa, author of A Ghost in the Throat

'More than any other book I have ever read, Seed captures the experience of girlhood for me: the messiness, confusion and glory. Not hyperbole: just what I feel.' Wendy Erskine
