9780006548102: Past Caring

How does it feel to discover you have lived before – in another time and place – and been born again?

Little Zoe Fox is only three, but she is sure she used to live in a different house, in another part of town, with another mother and father… Dinah, her present day mother, won’t countenance such nonsense, even when an old lady from that ‘other part of town’ takes Zoe under her wing. In fact, it suits Dinah down to the ground to leave her daughter in Caddy Dutton’s care sometimes – after all, to what harm can she come?

Witty, dramatic and audacious, Past Caring is a bewitching and intriguing tale of reincarnation and familial love, which explores the true nature of identity, and the bizarre quirks of fate which make us what we are.

Review:

‘Past Caring is a perceptive novel by a writer who skilfully blends the everyday with the fantastic. Zoe Fox’s struggle to fight free of the people who want to possess her is both poignant and believable.’
Helen Dunmore

‘Suzannah Dunn writes in loaded and knowing prose, like a hip Edna O’Brien or Muriel Spark in a gymslip.’
Glasgow Herald
