A darkly comic thriller you won't be able to put down.
In this Scotiabank Giller Prize winner, what seems to be an anecdotal experience—a customer in Jean’s bookstore is sure he just saw her, somewhere else, with shorter hair—becomes an obsession for Jean. She’s adamant her doppelgänger is someone she needs to meet and confront.
But is it because she’s convinced this person is nothing like her? Or is it to prove to herself that this person is actually real? As Jean’s world is turned upside down, we get turned with her. Who is Jean, and who is her double?
