The Schism by Robert Dickinson

Sharp, compassionate and darkly comic, this gripping literary thriller shows what happens when the lives of those you care about are suddenly, terrifyingly, at risk.

"Written with humour, intelligence and compassion... Dickinson’s second novel is by turns darkly comical, terrifying and poignant as it tackles the impact of mental health issues on the family." - Pamreader

Patrick Farrell’s life is complex, but under control. His work takes him through the streets of South London, repossessing credit cards and searching for missing debtors. And in the evenings he visits his schizophrenic brother, Mike, who stares out of his hospital room window, convinced he’s being watched. But when Patrick’s girlfriend introduces him to a new crowd with a strange interest in astrology and the occult, his world is thrown dramatically out of kilter.

"The story has at least three recognisable schisms... whether witchcraft is a sort of science or a sort of 
tradition, the schism between what we consider reality and madness and the 
schism between our world and other worlds." - Newbooks
