When the protagonist, the dysfunctional Reality Flickers, meets the psychotic Heart Beast (aka the fucker), death sex and sculpture collide in the stories that form The Fabricator’s Tale.

Katrina Palmer’s misanthropic characters are embedded within their own obsession with objects, with exposure, voyeurism, and the sexualised abuse of power, and appear to exist in a highly dysfunctional world, that parodies, and replicates both the conditions of art, and its place in contemporary society.

This meta-narrative is punctuation by short, abstract, and often disturbingly violent stories, featuring nameless characters that expose the repressed tension between the animate and inanimate, the sick malaise of contemporary life, and the cracking points of human subjectivity.

Here, in a new work by the author of The Dark Object, a series of tense and violent short stories are intertwined to form a narrative whole – a collection, with a twisted narrative structure, that parodies the form of a novel.
