Product description

Review

“The best Australian literary novel I’ve read this year. It’s an arresting portrait of masculine grief, set in a landscape of aching sadness.” -- The Age

“A terrifically self-assured debut…a cauterising, cleansing tale, told with muscular writing.” -- The Guardian

"In Peter Carey and Tim Winton, Australia has produced two of the finest storytellers working today. On this evidence, Wyld can match them both." -- The Daily Mail

"This is a young writer with talent to burn." -- The Independent

“Wyld has a feel both for beauty and for the ugliness of inherited pain.” -- The New Yorker

“This superb first novel is about fathers and sons, and the forces that turn men brutish.” -- The Times

“A jewel of a book.” -- Grazia

"Landscape plays a major role in Wyld's writing. It opens up the narrative, creating an eerie metaphorical space, or silence, between each character, mirroring the physical and mental fissures that separate each generation. Although nothing is truly silent: even the landscape is "thick with insect noise". The power of this mesmerising novel hangs on the premise that silence is impossible, while such impossibility forces the men who litter its landscape to desire it all the more... ...Wyld's writing is assured enough to elongate metaphor and symbolism, creating a novel both taut and otherworldly. This adroit examination of loss, lostness and trauma is the beginning of great things." -- The Independent

"The landscape of Australia's east coast looms large in the book, wild and sinister, filled with light and tragedy. This is a sad and lovely novel from a talented new writer." -- The Observer

Book Description

A haunting tale from a talented new writer.
