We will be discussing The Near Daphne Experience at our July At the Bookshop evening, secure your spot here.
Meet Daphne Buckley, a psychiatrist in search of a great love. He hasn’t turned up yet. But surely he will. He could be any one of the respondents to her old-fashioned ‘looking for love’ classifieds. He could be one of the men her overbearing mother tries to set her up with, or even someone she already knows.
It doesn’t matter. Daphne is determined and brainy and prepared to bend all the rules. With old schoolfriend Celeste by her side and her mother’s grooming tips for unkempt leg hair, love is likely just around the corner. Whether Daphne deserves it is another question. And with a psychopathic killer lurking, how far she’ll go to get it is the biggest question of all.
The Near Daphne Experience is a riotous romp about the unedifying search for love, and the most original book you’ll read this year.
