Synopses & Reviews
Two sisters, middle-aged and alienated from each other, find that their steady worlds are disintegrating. Each sets out on a quest, one from a Sydney drawing room to Bali's most sacred mountain, and the other from north London to the isle of Skye. The sisters' self-scrutiny, their encounters with strangeness, and finally with each other, are described in prose of unusual grace and power. A PEN/Faulkner Award nominee.
