Sophie McManus’s hilarious debut novel, The Unfortunates, chronicles a wealthy family in decline. Afflicted by a rare disease and faced with her own mortality, prominent heiress Cecelia Somner must confront the legacy of her family’s wealth and power. Comic and tragic in equal measure, Cecelia’s story reflects on influence, inheritance, class, and, ultimately, the transformative power of love.
