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.
‘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, author of Amphibian
'A beautiful story and one which I will treasure forever.' Nicola H.
