Imagining the unimaginable

A new novel by John Summons – available for Kindle

A park. A murder. We enter a world of shadows, with an atmosphere of repressed passion, violence and corruption, a place where a sense of intrigue lurks beneath the appearance of things. It is also a world in which Natalie, a young woman from a small, struggling fundamentalist Christian sect led by an American pastor, faces the deepest mysteries and conflicts of her life – the truth about the brutal death of her father, her crumbling faith, her awakening sexuality and an extraordinary but real brain disease that should have killed her but has left her miraculously intact.  “Memories of a Brainless Girl” is a story that is sometimes humorous, satirical, thought-provoking and moving, about mind, God, miracles, mystery, murder and a girl with “no brain”.


There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
– Hamlet
