“A writer of extraordinary range and imagination” Cate Kennedy
“There is a poetry in Mills’s writing that shimmers like desert air – and in her storytelling, in the way she captures the moods of time, there is something mystical. Daring, original and ambitious.” The Australian
“Shockingly good.” The Saturday Paper
An electrifying novel about an oracle. A small town. And the end of the world as we know it…
One morning, the residents of a small coastal town somewhere in Australia wake to discover the sea has disappeared. One among them has been plagued by troubling visions of this cataclysm for years. Is she a prophet? Does she have a disorder that skews her perception of time? Or is she a gifted and compulsive liar?
Oscillating between the future and the past, Dyschronia is a novel that tantalises and dazzles, as one woman’s prescient nightmares become entangled with her town’s uncertain fate. Blazing with questions of consciousness, trust, and destiny, this is a wildly imaginative and extraordinary novel from award-winning author Jennifer Mills.
