SHORTLISTED FOR THE MILES FRANKLIN LITERARY AWARD 2019
"There is a poetry in Mills's writing that shimmers like desert air - and in her storytelling, in the way she captures the moods of time, there is something mystical. Daring, original and ambitious." The Australian
An electrifying novel about an oracle. A small town. And the end of the world as we know it...
One morning, the residents of a small coastal town somewhere in Australia wake to discover the sea has disappeared. One among them has been plagued by troubling visions of this cataclysm for years. Is she a prophet? Does she have a disorder that skews her perception of time? Or is she a gifted and compulsive liar?
Oscillating between the future and the past, Dyschronia is a novel that tantalises and dazzles, as one woman's prescient nightmares become entangled with her town's uncertain fate. Blazing with questions of consciousness, trust, and destiny, this is a wildly imaginative and extraordinary novel from award-winning author Jennifer Mills.
AUREALIS AWARDS 2018 FINALIST FOR THE BEST SCIENCE FICTION NOVEL
PRAISE FOR DYSCHRONIA
"Shockingly good." The Saturday Paper
"A writer of extraordinary range and imagination" Cate Kennedy, author of The World Beneath
"...Mills draws on the arsenal of social realism, as what follows is a finely drawn study of a small town struggling to survive." Sydney Review of Books
"In recent years, a number of Australian authors have turned their attention to the interrelated effects of climate change... borrowing elements from fantasy and science-fiction to write about an increasingly surreal reality. Jennifer Mill's Dyschronia adds a new voice to this growing chorus." Readings
"Dyschronia is the best (and perhaps most terrifying) kind of dystopian fiction." Lifted Brow
"clear, well-crafted, and unique" Kill Your Darlings
