About the Author

Hannah Capin finished her first "novel" when she was eleven. Thousands of pages later, she's still writing about smart girls and vengeance. Hannah's debut novel The Dead Queens Club was released in January 2019, followed by Foul Is Fair in January 2020.


Fierce, ruthless and unputdownable * Karen McManus, bestselling author of One Of Us Is Lying *
A tale of power and retribution - Macbeth for Gen Z * The Sun *
Post-#MeToo, novels aimed at teenage girls frequently revolve around topics of consent, slut-shaming and revenge porn. The haste to be timely can mean half-cooked ingredients, something Hannah Capin's Foul Is Fair could never be accused of: rather Capin turns the heat up high to roast setting...wicked fun! * Financial Times *
Capin's twisty, blood-soaked take on Shakespeare's play is a propulsive, white-hot juggernaut of vengeance that packs a viscerally satisfying punch. * Publishers Weekly *
This isn't a how-to-murder-your-classmates manual; it's a ferocious, frenzied reaction to a world that has, for too long, treated women as collateral damage in stories that have been deemed more important than theirs ... Jade's first-person narrative, steeped in rage and drenched, unapologetically, with gore, moves at a relentless pace. * Booklist, starred review *
This book is not to be missed. * Paste *
Rhythmic, propulsive prose drives this bloody retelling of Macbeth at a relentless pace all the way to its violent end...impossible to put down. * Kirkus *
[A] dark, brutal revenge fantasy, sharply feminist and brimming with melodic prose. Capin's sophomore novel is bloody brilliant - exceedingly bloody, and every bit as brilliant * Dana Mele, author of People Like Us *
Capin's writing will seduce you with its beauty and then, when you least suspect it, slice you to the bone - just like Foul is Fair's captivating, vicious, entirely unforgettable heroine, Jade * Layne Fargo, author of Temperand and co-host of Unlikeable Female Characters podcast *
Fierce, vicious, and electric. If books had teeth, Foul Is Fair would have fangs. Capin's language glitters dark and her writing cuts deep. Revenge is a dish best served by this deliciously unapologetic coven * Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of Firsts and Last Girl Lied To *
Vicious and beautifully brutal, Foul is Fair gives a sword to every girl who has ever been a victim and makes them a warrior. This book is pulls no punches . . . An unapologetic feminist battle-cry that leaves you breathless and thirsting for vengeance * Sonia Hartl, author of Have a Little Faith in Me *
Foul is Fair delivers the story of a girl who snatches control back from a world that stole it away, through whatever means necessary. Hannah Capin deftly combines stunningly lyrical prose with the raw power of engulfing fury, sending a message written in blood. In a world where too many are forced into silence, this book roars back * Sophie Gonzales, author of The Law of Inertia and Only Mostly Devastated *
Jade does what uncounted sexual assault survivors have dreamed of doing - she takes matters into her own hands. What ensues is part [...] revenge fantasy, part diabolically well-planned manipulation, and it's all done in lyrical prose that feels dreamy and so much like Shakespeare. A gorgeous, scorchingly emotional novel * Wendy Heard, author of Hunting Annabelle and The Kill Club and cohost of Unlikeable Female Characters podcast *
This revenge fantasy told from the point of view of a rape survivor will shock and awe. * School Library Journal *
