From her apartment window, Doreen Durand witnesses a horrific accident.

The police want to know what she saw. Doreen doesn't want to tell them - or anyone. But when she runs away it's straight into the fantastic world of the wealthy and mysterious Violet Cascade. With one rogue police officer in pursuit, and life becoming more bizarre by the day, Doreen is caught up in a surreal game of cat and mouse.

MEDIA REVIEWS

I read this genre-exploding, original debut in a single day, and was hooked by its vivid images, its spiky strangeness, and its profound understanding of the disembodying effects of surviving trauma and living under capitalism.

-- Christina Neuwirth

A fast-paced and original debut.

* The New European *

Genuinely original and stylishly written. The Disassembly of Doreen Durand is a surreal flight of fancy but also a poignant and thought provoking look at a woman collapsing in on herself. An empathetic and magical tale.

-- Paul Burke * NB Magazine *

This tantalising, highly readable story defies neat categorisation, and is all the more enjoyable for it.

-- Rachel Farmer * Lunate *

“Strange, unpredictable even a bit scary ..but what a great read.”

Impossible to categorise, fascinatingly amorphous. The book is quite graphic with gruesome scenes and focuses on a protagonist with mental health issues and their descent into madness and eventually stabilisation... More
