In an ageist society, where euthanasia is encouraged as a patriotic act, dementia is no longer tolerated.

Henry Morris is watching his wife slip away from him. Kaitlyn, a young waitress, is desperate for the funds to keep her brother’s life support machine switched on.

When a chance encounter brings the two together, they embark on an unconventional business arrangement that will force them to confront their prejudices, as well as their deepest, darkest secrets.

GUARDIAN BOOK OF THE MONTH
‘This compelling page-turner is so disturbingly real, I can’t stop thinking about it’ Daily Mail
‘A powerful and tender book, with even more emotional punch than Crosskey’s debut’ WI Life Magazine
‘This study of a washed-out, uncaring society is a salutary warning’ Guardian

‘On an overstretched earth, sustainability is sacred and the elderly are made to feel as if they have overstayed their welcome. Gripping, fast-moving and tightly plotted, Overdrawn imagines a future in which we can no longer afford the luxury of old age’ Heather Child, author of Everything About You

‘Crosskey is a genius – I don’t know how many of these convincing, terrifying dystopias she has lined up, but I want to read them all. Overdrawn is flawless. It’s a compelling page-turner, an astute exploration of society’s attitude towards the ageing and the sick, and a beautiful portrait of connection between lost human beings. I truly loved it’ Laura Pearson, author of Missing Pieces and Nobody’s Wife

‘In Overdrawn, Crosskey creates a dystopian Britain in which the ageing population is neither valued nor tolerated. Compelling, unsettling – I couldn’t put it down’ Joanne Burn, author of Petals and Stones

‘Poignant, powerful and so very plausible. Crosskey’s writing is just flawless. Overdrawn is undoubtably an utter triumph and Crosskey is fast becoming the writer of our generation’ Stefanie @LiteraryElf

‘Crosskey takes the tricky subjects of ageing and dementia and spins something so inventive and heartrending. Wonderful characters, beautiful writing, this book is a total gem’ Clare Empson, author of Him
