Jean lives in downtown Toronto with her husband and two kids. The proud owner of a thriving bookstore, she doesn't rattle easily - not like she used to. But after two of her customers insist they've seen her double, Jean decides to investigate. Curiosity grows to obsession and soon Jean's concerns shift from the identity of the woman, to her very own.
In this darkly comic novel, Redhill takes readers down the existentialist rabbit hole, exploring the surprising and disturbing plasticity of self, and what happens when the sense you've made of things stops making sense.
