SLAVE. ESCAPE-ARTIST. MURDERER.
TERRORIST. SPY. LOVER.
MOTHER. TRICKSTER.

At the Golden Sunset retirement home, it is not unusual for residents to invent stories.

So when elderly Ms Mook first begins to unspool her memories, the obituarist listening to her is sceptical. Stories of captivity, friendship, murder, assumed identities and spying. A life that moves from WWII Indonesia to Busan during the Korean war; from cold-war Pyongyang to a Protestant church in China.

The adventures are so colourful and various, at times so unbelievable. Surely they can’t all belong to the same woman. Can they? 8 Lives of a Century-Old Trickster longlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction 2024, announced on 5th March 2024.
