16 September 2020
Explores life in a world permanently locked down in the aftermath of a pandemic.

'In A Song for a New Day, liberty and creative endeavour are compromised by political and socioeconomic reality. Pinsker presents a frighteningly real near-future US [and] movingly charts Rosemary's coming-of-age story as her world and Luce's collide' GuardianBEFORE Luce is on the road. Success is finally within grasp: her songs are getting airtime; the venues she's playing are getting larger. But mass shootings, bombings and now a strange contagion are closing America down around her...

AFTER Rosemary is too young to remember the Before. She's grown up in a world where proximity to others is not only unusual, it is also illegal. Life as she knows it is entirely online, virtual. But now she's on the road, in the real world, searching for something that, until a few weeks ago, she never knew existed.

Reviews for Song for a New Day

'In A Song for a New Day, liberty and creative endeavour are compromised by political and socioeconomic reality. Pinsker presents a frighteningly real near-future US ... Pinsker movingly charts Rosemary's coming-of-age story as her world and Luce's collide' * Guardian * 'This excellent debut novel by Nebula winner Pinsker establishes her as an astonishingly impressive writer of day-after-tomorrow SF ... This tale of hope and passion is a remarkable achievement' * Publishers Weekly *STARRED REVIEW* * 'Cements Pinsker's status as a rising star in the world of speculative fiction ... A gorgeous novel that celebrates what can happen when one person raises her voice' * Kirkus Reviews * 'Woven through Pinsker's meticulously crafted future of technology-enabled isolation and corporate-consumerist powerlessness is a stirring anthem against the politics of fear. A dazzling tale told in multiple voices, with not a single note out of place. This is the lyrical protest song that we have always needed, perhaps more so now than ever' -- Ken Liu, author of Grace of Kings 'An all-too plausible version of the apocalypse, rendered in such compelling prose that you won't be able to put it down ... A lively and hopeful look at how community and music and life goes on even in the middle of dark days and malevolent corporate shenanigans' -- Kelly Link, author of Get it Trouble 'A compelling book about the importance of music - and any sort of art - in a world where it seems like the least essential thing. This is an expertly drawn post-catastrophe world peopled by compassionately written characters' -- Ann Leckie, author of Ancillary Mercy 'The combination of technothriller, rock-and-roll novel, and rebellion in a dystopian world make for a riveting, sweet, funny, angry, gorgeous read' -- Cory Doctorow, author of Walkaway 'Sarah Pinsker has written a wonderful epic about music, community, and rediscovering the things that make us human' -- Charlie Jane Anders, author of All the Birds in the Sky
