Surreal, intelligent and at times humorous and provocative, Disappearing Act is a unique collection of short stories that challenge the complacencies of every day experience, often from entirely unexpected angles. Woven into the details of the stories are little insights that are both charming and impressive and that stay with the reader long after the book is closed.

Informed by the author’s peripatetic life, Disappearing Act reflects on the absurdity of human behaviour and the dark impulses that lurk not too far below the shiny surfaces of many outwardly normal lives.
