An original and confronting portrayal of a woman facing a personal and professional crisis, this stirring novel is an elegant meditation on the power a single mistake can have on life. Doctor Anna McBride's life is starting to unravel--the mother of two boys and a dedicated general practitioner, she is being sued for medical negligence, a case of delayed diagnosis. Deeply ashamed of her mistake, she retreats into family life, only to find that her husband seems preoccupied with a younger colleague. As the date for mediation draws closer and the lawyers' demands become ever more pressing, Anna begins to sense someone else's cries for attention--someone who wishes her harm.

Authors Bio, not available


"Dissection is a perfectly judged and beautifully written account--a pensive and probing character study, a portrait of quiet despair and stoicism." --Victorian Premier's Literary Awards "A bracing and beautiful novel--I recommend it as an unputdownable and richly rewarding read, an extended ethical work-out of the classiest kind." --Helen Garner, author, The Spare Room
