  • Ness likes wild swimming, spending long periods of time by herself (and then feeling anxious about it afterwards) and Jonathan. Jonathan likes Ness too, but he also likes her brother Frank. And Frank likes nothing at all - being far above the bourgeouis predictability of pleasure.

    They're all spending the summer together, in Ness's mother's rackety old flat in Marseilles, where it is 'quiet enough to finish a PhD but not so quiet, thank God, that one can actually hear oneself think'.

    What could possibly go wrong?

Saoirse Dunn is a graduate of University College Dublin who is currently completing her PhD at Kings College London, exploring representations of time in modernist cinema. She has contributed to numerous zines and literary journals; Chlorine is her first novel.
