“Shh, my Nuala. I am with you. Today I shall teach you the newness of you.”As the Engine breathes life into Nuala, her gaze falls on Teacher-Servant, the chosen one. He alone will be able to hear her thoughts and interpret her emotions. But soon Teacher-Servant starts to worry that Nuala will be able to give away her thoughts freely. Set in an atypical dystopian world, Nuala is startlingly original and inventive, echoing the work of Margaret Atwood, José Saramago, and Kazuo Ishiguro. Beach’s dark, fearless imagination has created a time and space that are at once remote and strange, but absorbing and deeply credible. Nuala leaves the reader with much to consider about the nature of love, possessiveness, jealousy, envy, and autonomy.
Kimmy Beach is a writer, editor, and mentor. Nuala: A Fable is her sixth book. Her latest publication, The Last Temptation of Bond (UAP), received wide recognition. She lives in Red Deer, Alberta. Visit her at

Editorial Reviews

“Nuala: A Fable, by Alberta writer and editor Kimmy Beach, describes a dystopian world where Nuala, a giant puppet, and her Teacher-Servant explore their city and their relationship while Nuala gradually becomes aware of her own complex inner terrain…. Nuala is a departure for Beach, who is well known as a poet… Beach admits to some trepidation about how the book may be received. ‘But it’s too late now. She’s out there, stomping around and demanding attention. Come what may.’” - Margaret Anne Fehr - Prairie Books Now - 20170901
