An astonishing and unique novel inspired by the author's own story
Vivian is a cosmopolitan Taiwanese-American tourist who often escapes her busy life in London through adventure and travel. Johnny is a 15-year-old Irish teenager, living a neglected life on the margins of society.
On a bright spring afternoon in West Belfast, their paths collide during a horrifying act of violence.
In the aftermath, each is forced to confront the chain of events that led to the attack.
Inspired by true events, this is a story of the dark chapters and chance encounters that can irrevocably determine the shape of our lives.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Complex and rewarding... an important book' -- Stylist


'Heart-wrenching depiction... Brave, raw and strikingly original, it is a story that will resonate for many years' -- Daily Mail
'An important and moving book about rape and the long process of recovery.' -- Cathy Rentzenbrink, author of The Last Act of Love
'Dark Chapter is a fascinating book, which takes an unflinching look at reality of sexual violence. I found myself asking hard questions about society and relationships, but above all I was gripped by the brilliant and complex narrative. I have never found myself rooting for a heroine with more urgency than in Dark Chapter.' -- Kate Rhodes
'Deftly written, pacey and unflinching, I could not put it down. Winnie Li is a rare talent with an explosive and timely story. Do not miss it.' -- Marti Leimbach, best-selling author of Dying Young and Daniel Isn't Talking
`Dark Chapter is a must-read. It's gripping, compelling and all the more authentic for inhabiting both voices so completely. Stunning.' -- Erin Kelly
`An authentic, courageous debut, told with unflinching honesty and exceptional insight.' -- A.D. Garrett
`A powerful story, compassionately told.' -- Ros Barber, winner of the Desmond Elliott Prize and The Author's Club First Novel Award
`An accomplished debut, an honest and unsparing story.' -- Cath Staincliffe
