Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After the departure of the woman he loves, Frank struggles to rebuild his life among the sugarcane and sand dunes that surround his oceanside shack. Forty years earlier, Leon is drafted to serve in Vietnam and finds himself suddenly confronting the same experiences that haunt his war-veteran father. As these two stories weave around each other—each narrated in a voice as tender as it is fierce—we learn what binds Frank and Leon together, and what may end up keeping them apart.

 

Set in the unforgiving landscape of eastern Australia, Evie Wyld’s accomplished debut tackles the inescapability of the past, the ineffable ties of family, and the wars fought by fathers and sons.

Synopsis:

From one of "Granta's" New Voices of 2008: a stunningly accomplished debut novel, set in Australia, about the ineffable ties between fathers and sons--about the wars they fight between themselves and with others, and about the things they choose not to know about one another or about themselves.
