Jean Mason has a doppelganger.

She's never seen her, but others* swear they have.

*others | noun. A peculiar collection of drug addicts, scam artists, philanthropists, philosophers and vagrants - the regulars of Bellevue Square.

Jean lives in downtown Toronto with her husband and two kids. The proud owner of a thriving bookstore, she doesn't rattle easily - not like she used to. But after two of her customers insist they've seen her double, Jean decides to investigate. Curiosity grows to obsession and soon Jean's concerns shift from the identity of the woman, to her very own.

Funny, dark and surprising, Bellevue Square takes readers down the existentialist rabbit hole and asks the question: what happens when the sense you've made of things stops making sense?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Unsettling and bewildering. I was totally hooked -- Sam Baker * The Pool *
Dark, dazzling and wry, Bellevue Square is a novel that draws you in - superb -- William Ryan, author of The Constant Soldier
This is an intriguing book playing with notions of identity and the self. A "psychological" thriller in the truest sense of the word; I couldn't put it down -- Chloe Mayer, author of The Boy Made of Snow
Narrated with endearing wit... surface reality becomes increasingly hard to pin down as the book moves towards its phantasmagorical climax * The Guardian *
The book's literary grandparents include Philip K. Dick, Jorge Luis Borges, and Patricia Highsmith, and it's a meticulously made novel that rewards a second reading * Crime Time *

“Fact and fiction merge in a Toronto park”

This is going to be one of those books which divides and conquers. Some will love it, others won’t get it. I wasn’t sure what camp I was in for a while reading this and it’s only afterwards that I realise I’m in the... More
