Reward System

'A superb writer, by turns funny, graceful, acidly cynical, lyrical' GUARDIAN

«'A crushing and clear-sighted portrayal of people dodging the alienation of work, money and life's digital shorelines, told through short scenes so brilliantly observed I felt the reality of a generation in every detail.' - Holly Pester
'Calder proves a tender chronicler of the digital age, tunnelling into what it feels like, moment to moment, to navigate dating apps and YouTube viewing histories and neglected WhatsApp messages.' - Guardian

'If you've been waiting for someone to close the gap on social distancing, to capture the furtive problems of social media, to make you laugh at your own alienation, to wrap your mind around the narcissism of small differences, then Calder is your new best friend, and his debut collection is the must-read book of the year.
