A spaceship called Audition is hurtling through the cosmos. Squashed immobile into its largest room are three giants: Alba, Stanley and Drew. If they talk, the spaceship keeps moving; if they are silent, they resume growing. Part science fiction, part social realism, Pip Adam’s genre-bending new novel asks what happens when systems of power decide someone takes up too much room.

The women at the centre of Pip Adam’s uncanny novel seem on the brink of disappearing altogether. Nothing to See asks what it means to seek relief when the fabric of reality is ready to come apart.
