Synopses & Reviews
After the critical and commercial success of "True History of the Kelly Gang, Carey takes another giant step forward with a novel set in the Far East and shot through with intrigue at once historical, literary, and personal. In 1972, Sarah Wode-Douglass--the editor of a London literary magazine--has no particular curiosity about Malaysia, though her interest in John Slater has always been keen. A famous poet, Slater figured prominently in the disaster that was her parents' marriage. Many years after he mother's suicide, Sarah wonders still what Slater knows that she does not; so when he proposes that she accompany him to Kuala Lampur, she embarks on a journey that will profoundly alter every aspect of her life.
In his remarkable new audiobook, the two-time Booker Award-winning author Carey creates a creature as indelible as Frankenstein, when a writer invents an alter-ego that becomes all too real. Unabridged.
