Dey is renowned as a playwright (Trout Stanley, The Gwendolyn Poems) and known as a Globe and Mail columnist ('Group Therapy'), but Stunt proves her talents extend to narrative literature, as well. Her novel. Stunt, is a kaleidoscopic quest filled with funambulists, fires and macabre twins.

'You want to read this novel carefully; you want to read it again ... Hypnotic and dazzling, Stunt is, quite simply, a feat.' – Globe and Mail

'It’s as if poet Anne Carson and satirist Mordecai Richler accidentally collided at a drunken PEN fundraiser to produce a mischievous, magical and observant girl-child.' – Toronto Star

‘Claudia Dey’s debut novel is like a snowflake, utterly unique, compellingly intricate and sparkle-riven, sharp as broken crystal and just as dazzling. Stunt is daring, poignant, full of abandon and abandonment, wistful and funny. Brilliant.’ – Lisa Moore
