An elegant, haunting debut from an exciting new voice that reads like a modern classicIn an undefined era and place, a cleaning woman at a museum of art aspires to do more than simply dust the paintings around her. She dreams of having the liberty to explore them in writing, and so must find the way to win herself the security and time to use her mind. She escapes her lot by marrying a rich man, but having gained a husband, a house, high society and a maid, she finds that her new life of privilege is no less constrained. Not only has she taken up different forms of time-consuming labour - social and erotic - but she is now, however passively, forcing other women to clean up after her. Perhaps another and more drastic solution is necessary?Indelicacy is an exquisite gem of a novel about class, desire, friendship, art, and the battle to find one's true calling.'Amina Cain is a phenomenal writer. I adore her work, and sensibility... Arch, yet warm; aspiring and impervious; confiding and enigmatic; reposing and intrepid; Cain has conjured a protagonist who purged my mind and filled my heart.' - Claire-Louise Bennett, author of Pond'I read it slowly, in a kind of reverie, wanting to savour every page... A completely absorbing, luminous account of a woman inhabiting her life and creativity.' - Megan Hunter, author of The End We Start From'Amina Cain redefines strangeness and freedom in this beautiful and unusual novel that resembles fairy tales and ghost stories but feels intensely contemporary.' - Alejandro Zambra, author of Multiple Choice
