Product details

Product description


'Sala's prose is clear and unadorned, the setting exquisitely rendered, but it is his characters--all of them flawed and complex and deeply, deeply human--who will stay with me for a very long time. I would defy anyone to read this story and remain unmoved. The Restorer is an incredibly powerful novel and, I believe, an important one.' --Hannah Kent, author of Burial Rites; 'A wise and timely novel that builds and breaks like a summer storm--just as beautiful, just as brutal.'--Fiona McFarlane, author of The High Places; 'Powerful, poetic, extraordinary fiction...Sala never falters.'--Australian; 'Unputdownable...Sala creates an atmosphere of simmering tension with an undercurrent of unpredictability that seeps into every exchange. [He] is a brilliant writer.'--Saturday Paper; 'Glows with all the complicated pain and joy of being human...A tremendous depth of insight and compassion on the part of the writer informs the three main characters...The reader knows pain is coming but the power and deep humanity of Sala's writing defies the instinct to look away.'--SA Weekend; 'Entrancing and heartbreakingly sad.'--Who Weekly; 'A sensitively rendered novel with a fine eye for emotional and physical detail. The questions it raises are as disturbing as they are compelling.'--Sydney Morning Herald; 'Sala taps into the tension and fear of the times to help build the mood...The cracks are widening long before the earth moves in this novel of a family locked into patterns of violence.'--Australian Women's Weekly

Book Description
