What happens when the sense you've made of things stops making sense?
'Unsettling and bewildering. I was totally hooked' — Sam Baker, The Pool
Winner of the 2017 Scotiabank Giller Prize
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?
'Narrated with endearing wit… surface reality becomes increasingly hard to pin down as the book moves towards its phantasmagorical climax'
The Guardian
'There's plenty of fun to be had in this' — Daily Mail
'Highly original, beautiful and unsettling. Michael Redhill takes a fascinating premise and turns it into something utterly mesmerising. I adored it' — Chris Whitaker, author of Tall Oaks and All the Wicked Girls
'An ambitious and engrossing novel by a writer at the height of his powers' — G J Minett, author of Lie in Wait and The Hidden Legacy
