Book Launch: The Other Daughter

Another book launch from House of D Publications: this time, a revenge tragedy set in a fictional Midwestern town after a fictional second US/Korean War. It features ass-kicking lesbians, creepy ghost monsters, horrific mutilation, and a plot stolen from inspired by Shakespeare. Clearly the stuff of powerful cinematic legend or, more accurately, just me having a good time with writing something rather than making an enormous fuss about the moral and social implications of the text.

The Other Daughter

I started writing this novella in 2006 and finished it in 2011; in the intervening time I managed to write two and a half other novels (including Pass the Parcel) and a lot of short stories and poetry, so I haven’t been entirely idle, but The Other Daughter has taken a while. The characters are somewhat larger-than-life, the setting archetypal, and the overall book a tribute to my favourite of Shakespeare’s plays (if you’re at all familiar with it you will recognise which one quite quickly).

Polly Mazlowczy has returned from a fictitious conflict in North Korea a changed woman. Just how changed, her strange and insular family and the people of an isolated Midwestern town are about to discover. The Other Daughter is a revenge tragedy of the old school given a modern twist.

At present The Other Daughter is only available in print (for £8.99) but with sufficient demand an ePUB & Kindle edition may become available.

    1. Well exactly, and I’m hardly alone in filching from Shakespeare – all the best have done it! And some of the worst…
