Revenge: Murder in Three Parts
‘A coiled spring of a novel, Revenge hits you right between the eyes.’—Malcolm Harris
A family favour their son over their daughter. Shan attends university before making his fortune in Australia while Yannie must find menial employment and care for her ageing parents. After her mother’s death, Yannie travels to Sydney to become enmeshed in her psychopathic brother’s new life, which she seeks to undermine from within …
This is a novel that rages against capitalism, hetero-supremacy, mothers, fathers, families—the whole damn thing. It’s about what happens when you want to make art but are born in the wrong time and place.
S L Lim brings to vivid life the frustrations of a talented daughter and vengeful sister in a nuanced and riveting novel that ends in the most unexpected way. It will not be easily forgotten.
‘Lim’s astute rendering of the subtleties of familial power dynamics makes this novel powerful reading for all.’—Cher Tan, Books+Publishing
