Publisher's Summary

One hundred days. It’s no time at all, she tells me. But she’s not the one waiting.

In a heady whirlwind of independence, lust and defiance, 16-year-old Karuna falls pregnant. Not on purpose, but not entirely by accident, either. Incensed, Karuna’s mother, already over-protective, confines her to their 14th-storey housing-commission flat, to keep her safe from the outside world - and make sure she can’t get into any more trouble.

Stuck inside for endless hours, Karuna battles her mother and herself for a sense of power in her own life, as a new life forms and grows within her. As the due date draws ever closer, the question of who will get to raise the baby - who it will call Mum - festers between them.

One Hundred Days is a fractured fairytale exploring the fault lines between love and control. At times tense and claustrophobic, it is nevertheless brimming with humour, warmth and character. It is a magnificent new work from one of Australia’s most celebrated authors.

Raw and beautiful

Alice Pung beautifully captures the raw, problematic and beautiful relationship so many mother’s and daughter navigate throughout their lives. I value Alice’s ability to capture how a mother’s excessive nurturing can be suffocating for a daughter, but from a mother’s perspective it is to protect her. This books follows a teenager, developing her relationship with her mother, as well has becoming a mother herself. It is a book that so effortlessly captures how a mother be so blinding and self-sacrificing.
