Kate Wake “A dreamlike debut” – Winnipeg Free Press

 

Mariianne Mays Wiebe’s “dreamlike debut” Kate Wake is “engrossing” with “compelling characters.” Kate Wake explores “… the history of mental health facilities in the early 20th century and Kate Wake’s experience within one. These scenes serve as brutal and terrifying emotional touchstones for Katie’s experience through mental turmoil. Katie’s experience is not the same, but the return to Kate Wake’s past evokes a powerful sense of dread and fear, crystallizing an experience of something that is still somewhat taboo in our current moment: mental illness.”

— The Winnipeg Free Press, 2020
