Description

This is an extract from The Disassembly of Doreen Durand and not the full text

An extraordinary, unpredictable debut novel exploring obsession and surviving trauma. 

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 a 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.

This is a good introduction to a forthcoming book. I for one, now want to read the rest of the story to establish exactly what Doreen has been doing, and is there really a Whitney that is the catalyst for where Doreen finds herself now.
