Revenge - Murder in Three Parts

Author(s): S. L. Lim

Australian Fiction | Stella Prize 2021

A family favour their son over their daughter. Shan attends university before making his fortune in Australia while Yannie must find menial employment and care for her ageing parents. After her mother's death, Yannie travels to Sydney to become enmeshed in her psychopathic brother's new life, which she seeks to undermine from within.

This is a novel that rages against capitalism, hetero-supremacy, mothers, fathers, families - the whole damn thing. It's about what happens when you want to make art but are born in the wrong time and place.

Staff Review - Jewelene 

S.L. Lim’s Malaysian-Oz, second novel, Revenge: Murder in Three Parts, is a tale of female fate, male privilege, heterocentricity and familial power dynamics gone wrong. It’s the nuance of the writing, a type of dark, dark humour that brings in the light.
