Welcome

The Motion of Puppets is my new novel, published on October 4 by Picador USA. It is the story of Theo and Kay Harper, a newly married couple working for the summer in Quebec. One night Kay enters the Quatre Mains toy shop after midnight and disappears. The story revolves around Theo's desperate quest to find her and Kay's descent into an underworld of puppets. The Motion of Puppets draws on the Orpheus and Eurydice myth, Muybridge's pioneering work in creating motion through still photographs, and the shadow life of puppets. Pictured below is a model of the puppet Noe, one of the puppets she encounters.
