How to Disappear, Paperback



Amanda Dalton's first collection, How to Disappear, shines a torch into the dark corners and finds a world inhabited by the missing and the dead, by monsters and wounded beasts, discarded dreams and the memories of strangers.

At its heart is the narrative sequence Room of Leaves.

It is 1959. Grace, at last, falls in love. Jilted at the altar, she sets up home in the garden of her mother's bungalow and waits, for thirty years, in a world of birds and bright umbrellas, for Frank to return.
