Shelf Indulgence Review
This Shelf Indulgence reviews Winnie M Li’s factually-based debut novel. Vivian is a cosmopolitan Taiwanese American tourist who escapes her busy life in London through adventure and travel. Johnny is a 15-year-old Irish teenager, living a neglected and alienated existence on the margins of society. On a bright spring afternoon in West Belfast, their paths collide in a horrifying act of violence.
In the aftermath, each is forced to confront the chain of events that led to the attack.
Inspired by true events and told from the perspectives of both the victim and the perpetrator, Winnie M Li’s Dark Chapter is brave, raw and visceral. It deals with the devastating effects of violent crime on the victim, coupled with disturbing and thought-provoking insights into the mind and motivations of the perpetrator. An authentic and courageous debut, told with unflinching honesty.
