Product description

Review

A bittersweet story of Burma, Bondi beach and broken lives... A literary cocktail of rare originality * Sunday Telegraph * The rewards are all over Spirit House, a little masterpiece of comedy and torment that mines new life from the well-told legend of the Thai-Burma railway of World War II * The Australian 'Books of the Year' * Every other week, it seems, a fine new Australian novel is published. Few, however, can equal the vernacular flair, the originality of treatment of matters that we had thought overly familiar and the narrative drive of Mark Dapin's Spirit House... Dapin is funny, poignant, vibrantly witty and hisnovel is a treat from its elegiac opening to its bitter, unexpected close. * Canberra Times * This is a book destined for classic status in every sense of the word. It is powerful, poignant, moving, tragic and intensely distressing. It is a feast of a story which will almost simultaneously move you to tears and bring a smile to your face. * ABC News * --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
