‘Mesmeric, intoxicatingly original’ Hannah Kent, bestselling author of Burial Rites

‘Haunting and surreal… With its sharp wit and beautiful writing, this book had me flying through the pages.’ Ana Reyes, New York Times bestselling author of The House in the Pines

‘A towering achievement, stunningly good storytelling.’ Melissa Lucashenko, Miles Franklin Award winning author of Too Much Lip

On the surface, Alice is exactly where she should be in life: she’s just given birth to a beautiful baby girl; her ever-charming husband – an academic whose area of study is conveniently her own Mohawk culture – is nothing but supportive; and they’ve moved into a home in a wealthy neighbourhood. But strange things have started happening. Alice finds herself hearing voices she can’t explain and speaking with things that should not be talking back to her, all while her neighbours’ passive aggression begins to morph into something far more threatening…

Told in Alice’s raw and darkly funny voice, and infused with Native American myth and legend, And Then She Fell is a wild, fierce novel.

Didn't take to this one at all. It covers some interesting and important issues such as colonialism, racism and mental health, but I felt I was taken by the hand and walked through it all with baby steps. More just showing and less explaining of everything would have suited me better.
