This is Agatha Falling (Pedlar 2019) now available


In her debut novella, THIS IS AGATHA FALLING, St. John’s singer-songwriter and photographer Heather Nolan’s characters stomp through smoky downtown bars dragging longing, trauma, illness, confusion, and addiction with them. Fragmented memory is her unreliable narrator, demonstrating how the past continually interrupts the present, asking, “How is one to determine which is memory, and which the dream?”

“In This is Agatha Falling, Heather Nolan captures the beer-soaked corners of St. John’s and the whirlwind of Montreal’s metro stations and streets, finding tension and romance there.”
– Eva Crocker, author of Barrelling Forward

“Heather Nolan weaves past and present, memory and action into an elegant tapestry that cleverly conceals its full picture until the very end. This is a confident and lyrical debut penned by an author of uncommon talent.”

– Sharon Bala, author of The Boat People
