Noémi Kiss-Deáki Mary and the Rabbit Dream recensie en review

  • “Mary and the Rabbit Dream, a magnificent debut novel by Noémi Kiss-Deáki, fictionalises the strange 18th-century tale of Mary Toft.” (The Telegraph)
  • “Incantatory, repetitive short sentences that sit on the page like a prose poem, enjoy Noémi’s “deliciously sardonic, lightly conversational tone, and note how the subversive wit the novel turns on its male characters makes it sing.” (Norma Clarke, The Times Lirarairy Supplement)

Flaptekst van de roman over Mary Toft van Noémi Kiss-Deáki

A sardonic, feminist reimagining of the story of Mary Toft, infamous rabbit-birthing hoaxer.

Mary Toft was just another eighteenth-century woman living in poverty, misery, and frequent pain. The kind of person overlooked by those with power, forgotten by historians.Mary Toft was nothing. Until, that is, Mary Toft started giving birth to rabbits. In Mary and the Rabbit Dream, the sensational debut novelist Noémi Kiss-Deáki reimagines Mary’s strange and fascinating story – and how she found fame when a large swath of England became convinced that she was the mother of rabbits.

Mary and the Rabbit Dream is a story of bodily autonomy, of absurdity, of the horrors inflicted on women, of the cruel realities of poverty, and the grotesque divides between rich and poor. It’s a book that matters deeply – and it’s also a compelling page-turner. A story told with exquisite wit, skill, and a beautiful streak of subversive mischief.

Noémi Kiss-Deáki was born in Finland and lives on the Åland Islands – a devolved and autonomous region of Finland with its own laws and a population of 30,000. Noémi speaks Hungarian, Swedish and English but writes all of her fiction in English. She has an academic background in art history and the history of science and ideas. She works as a medical secretary in the day, and writes fiction in the evenings.
