Dr. Edith Vane, scholar of English literature, is contentedly ensconced at the University of Inivea. Her dissertation on pioneer housewife memoirist Beulah Crump-Withers is about to be published, and her job's finally safe, if she only can fill out her AAO properly. She's a little anxious, but a new floral blouse and her therapist's repeated assurance that she is the architect of her own life should fix that. All should be well, really. Except for her broken washing machine, her fickle new girlfriend, her missing friend Coral, her backstabbing fellow professors, a cutthroat new dean - and the fact that the sentient and malevolent Crawley Hall has decided it wants them all out, and the hall and its hellish hares will stop at nothing to get rid of them.

Like an unholy collision of Stoner , The Haunting of Hill House , Charlie Brown , and Alice in Wonderland , this audacious new novel by the Giller Prize-longlisted Suzette Mayr is a satire that takes the hallowed halls of the campus novel in fantastical - and unsettling - directions.

Praise for Monoceros :

' Monoceros is one of the most imaginative, quirky and emotionally devastating novels I've read in a long while.'
