Of Vengeance


Coming in September 2019 from Dundurn Press, J.D. Kurtness’s pitch-black comedy is an unforgettable tale of a brilliant young woman who will go to great lengths to craft the perfect revenge.

J.D. Kurtness won the 2018 Indigenous Voices award for French prose for the original De vengeance (L’instant-même, 2017).

“a voice-driven novella” … “chilling justification of a life of violence, as nonchalant as it is grim.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Kurtness writes smoothly …. Readers into passive-aggressive fantasies will best appreciate this one.”
