‘Tinged with melancholy and yearning, this novel is wry and frequently beautiful, and its culmination is surprising and deeply moving.’
Rachel Seiffert, Guardian

‘Filled with sharp observations about the way in which we live now … a haunting examination of depression and anxiety rendered in diamond-sharp prose with barely a wasted word.’
The i Paper

‘Sauma has the horrors of the workplace nailed with satirical precision’
Sunday Times

‘Beautifully written … Everything You Ever Wanted explores our current obsession with a meaningful life’
Bookseller

‘Uplifting, unputdownable and mordantly funny, Everything You Ever Wanted is the dystopian beach read you didn't know you needed. It's a love letter to London from outer space. It's both a speculative dystopian drama and a deadpan office satire. It's a brilliantly relatable and ambitious ode to the humdrum and the sublime; a truly original novel that captures the pleasures and displeasures of modern, earthly life.’
Sharlene Teo, author of Ponti

‘I read it quickly one weekend, engrossed in Iris’s story. Sauma skewers the falsities and disappointments of contemporary life and work with rare sensitivity, unfolding an evocative narrative of unearthly escape. I loved it.’
Megan Hunter, author of The End We Start From

Everything You Ever Wanted is one of the most original and urgent novels I've read this year. Sauma dives under the skin of the way we live now and makes it into an astonishing new shape. Funny, heart-breaking and thought-provoking - a novel that talks about all the things we are most afraid to talk about. Read it!
Clare Fisher, author All the Good Things

Everything You Ever Wanted is so sharp-eyed about our hidden hopes and tiny hypocrisies. Even the most fantastical elements feel painfully, perfectly true. I'd follow Sauma's voice down any wormhole.’
Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, author of Harmless Like You

‘Sublime’
Otegha Uwagba, author of Little Black Book

‘Courageous, haunting, and beautiful – with Everything You Ever Wanted, Luiza Sauma takes us on a breathtaking voyage through both the farthest reaches of space and the innermost depths of the human soul.’
Peng Shepherd, author of The Book of M

‘An important and poignant novel that captures the ennui, panic and stubborn optimism of the zeitgeist with spirit, humour and a fearless portrayal of human truth.’
Helen Cullen, author of The Lost Letters of William Woolf

‘A daring and original novel that asks profound questions about the way we live today whilst being simultaneously playful and fun. Sauma is brilliant at nailing the details of contemporary life in a way that is recognisable to anyone who has suffered the mundanity of office jobs.’
Laura Kaye, author of English Animals
