Product description


“Nails the Perfect-Yourself 35-43 gen in all of its hopeful internet-brand-conscious pyramid-scheming empowering goddessiness. Social satire+ cultural insight whipped into a yummy froth! You’ll laugh+shed a tiny precious tear, my petals!” (Margaret Atwood on Twitter)

“Selecky pokes fun at the culture of online empowerment that attracts women in particular — that strange mix of spirituality, philosophy and self-help with a healthy dash of capitalism — without mocking or dismissing it. . . . Smart and subtle.” (Toronto Star)

“Warm, sharp and deceptively light, with smart things to say about the commodification of spirituality; I ate it up.” (Lisa Gabriele, author of Tempting Faith DiNapoli and The Almost Archer)

“Our online world provides endless humorous possibility and here is a book that’s witty, timely, and smart with regard to social media. But then, quite wonderfully, Selecky’s story turns more complicated than it first appeared. Bursting with energy and color, every page delights and provokes. This book is a dazzler.”   (Karen Joy Fowler, author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves)

“The human desire to belong is at the heart of Sarah Selecky’s radiant, shimmering novel.  In the person of Lilian Quick, Selecky has created an irresistible heroine. She has once again proven that she is a writer perfectly attuned to the music of the present moment.”
(Barbara Gowdy, author of Little Sister)

Radiant Shimmering Light is inventive and modern. Sarah Selecky delivers a cast of characters who are both recognizable and utterly unique in
this novel that is as luminous as its title.” 
(Marissa Stapley, author of Things To Do When It’s Raining)

“Fresh and original, Sarah Selecky’s novel cleverly satirizes our insta-world but also takes its characters seriously enough to give them an ending that’s moving and transcendent.” (Kerry Clare, author of Mitzi Bytes)

“Bright and crisp. Humour and light infuse the sentences. . . . Brimming with insights into female-driven motivational seminars in the age of #MeToo, Radiant Shimmering Light speaks to our desire for community.”
(Hamilton Review of Books)

“Sarah Selecky could easily be the next Alice Munro.” (Chatelaine)

“Selecky’s stories are ultra-lush and wise, wickedly wry.  She is uncannily accurate about all the tender, blasted-open moments that change us for the good.  This Cake… is delicious.”  (Lisa Moore, Scotiabank Giller Prize-shortlisted author of Caught)

From the Back Cover

A sharply funny debut novel about female friendship, the face we show the world online, and being a spiritual girl in a material world

I hear the sound of the Universe texting me . . .

Lilian Quick has looked up to her cousin Florence her whole life. Florence is everything Lilian is not—brave, confident, quick to find adventure . . . and American. The women have been out of touch for years due to a family rift, but Lilian, childless, single, and self-employed as a pet portrait artist, has
been watching Florence from afar. Florence is now Internet-famous as Eleven Novak, the face of a compelling new feminine lifestyle empowerment brand.

When Eleven, after a twenty-year silence, offers Lilian a place at her Manhattan office, it comes with a promise. She will help her cousin rise up to her highest self—confident, affluent, and self-actualized—if Lilian enrols in the brand’s signature program, the Ascendency.

In just months, Lilian’s life changes drastically: an apartment in New York, a spiritual awakening, a growing bank account, and a shocking amount of influence. It is all a dream come true. But is this Lilian’s dream? What does Eleven want from her? Who is Eleven, really, after all these years? And who does Lilian Quick truly want to be?
