Some Reviews

“Raw, harrowing and compelling. This is a worthy addition to the new genre of mad memoirs.”- Robert Dellar, Mad Pride

“Thought-provoking, stark, brutal and exhilarating.”  Anne Mathie, Mind Out

oblivion evangelist

The Oblivion Evangelist – A savage and satirical novel about a female serial killer, published by Hole Books in 2003, and then reprinted by Jagged Books in 2012.

“Brit Transgressive Dolly Sen has a honest violent streak that recalls Quentin Tarantino, Chuck Palahnuik and the grandmaster of all murder-mindded transgressives: Fyodor Dostoesvsky” Levi Asher, Litkicks.

“Sen presents herself full-frontally, not pulling any punches with her stark, sharp prose. This is an enjoyable pulp romp.”Jerome de Groot, Book Munch

“What a gorgeous writer. able to tell a horrific story. Delightful. Never once does she lose sight of an important fact – if you write about the bad stuff at least make it funny. And this she does to an amazing degree. The Oblivion Evangelist is a bloody comedy with a great twist at the end.” Teasalweasel Blogspot

My follow-up to ‘The World is Full of Laughter’

“An epistle to equality, tolerance and the true beauty of madness. Dolly Sen’s powerful personal pilgrimage to love, life and humanity again is a very intimate tale about the power of dreaming, taking control and fighting for the right to be oneself and to be equal and to be accepted” – David Morris, Senior Policy Adviser to the Mayor (Disability), Greater London Authority
