On a warm and late summer evening in 2015, after her boyfriend dumps her, Essex girl, Donna Rigg drunkenly smashes her car into a pillar box. She is taken to hospital where she is diagnosed with concussion.

Over the next few weeks, her perception changes, for she begins to see the world as it was fifty-five years previously in 1960. On a follow-up visit for an MRI, she becomes frightened and argues with staff. Becoming aggressive and overhearing she could be sectioned, she runs from the hospital and vanishes in the grounds as 1960 actually becomes her reality...


Misplaced was written (optimistically) as literary fiction and as a first person narration. It is focused more on theme than on plot. As Donna describes her adventure, it certainly risks losing its way with no simplistic logical ending.
