Reviews

'an absolute cracker, Love & Virtue lobs right into the current moment with a clarifying light. I hope EVERYONE reads this book.' * Helen Garner * 'I have been chewing on this book for days now. Compelling reading. So well written. Complex. I keep turning it over in my mind and I want to talk about it!' * Hannah Kent * 'An extraordinary new voice in Aussie lit.' * Zoe Foster Blake * 'Loved it...It's electrifying' * Annabel Crabb * 'Love and Virtue is an accomplished novel - by turns funny and furious, and full of the plangent longing and confusion of early adulthood.' -- Fiona Wright * The Saturday Paper * 'Love & Virtue is a formidable debut novel. The writing is punchy and clever, with characters so deeply drawn that they feel like friends and enemies from a former life.' -- Zoya Patel * The Guardian Australia * 'I inhaled it...an amazing book' * Mia Freedman * 'Reid writes with ferocity and intelligence, and this novel demands attention and commands respect.' -- Anna Carew-Reid * Sunday Times Magazine * 'Unputdownable, her rich and resplendent detail distils the Australian campus experience with cutting insight, ultimately leading the audience to contemplate its trenchant central question: are you a good person, or do you just look like one?' -- Noah Vaz * Law Society Journal * 'Fans of Sally Rooney will gravitate to this compelling read that centres on feminism, power and sex in the lives of Australian university students.' -- Maggie Zhou * Refinery 29 Australia * 'Reid is a young author to watch.' * Marie Claire * 'Love and Virtue captures the near-erotic thrill of being a young woman, alone and adrift, who finds, in another young woman, an intellectual equal ... Like Elena and Lila in Elena Ferrante's My Brilliant Friend, a touchstone for Reid, their spark feels charged, given to exploding.' -- Neha Kale * Sydney Morning Herald * 'wonderfully readable prose, offering a nuanced and often very funny portrait of privilege and betrayal that probes complex questions about consent, trust and what it means to be a truly good person.' -- Gemma Nisbet * The West Australian * 'The prose crackles fiercely, luring readers in with phrases to mull over and taste before devouring the next delicious sentence.' -- Annabel Harz * Artshub *

Author Information

Diana Reid is a Sydney-based writer, who graduated from the University of Sydney last year with a Bachelor of Arts (First Class Hons Philosophy)/Laws. In January 2020, her career in theatre was off to a promising start: the musical she co-wrote and produced, 1984! The Musical!, debuted and she was set to direct and write theatre performances around the country and over to the Edinburgh Fringe. When COVID-19 saw the cancellation of global theatre, she decided she'd spend her time in shutdown writing a manuscript. Love & Virtue is her debut novel.
