'This Devastating Fever is a very good novel.’ – Howard Jacobson, New Statesman

'I loved this book. I absolutely loved it.’ – Christos Tsiolkas, author of The Slap and Barracuda

'This is a great novel of enduring significance and enormous beauty.’ – Sydney Morning Herald

Sometimes you need to delve into the past, to make sense of the present.

Alice had not expected to spend most of the twenty-first century writing about Leonard Woolf. When she stood on Morell Bridge watching fireworks explode from the rooftops of Melbourne at the start of a new millennium, she had only two thoughts. One was: the fireworks are better in Sydney. The other was: is Y2K going to be a thing? Y2K was not a thing. But there were worse disasters to come. Environmental collapse. The return of fascism. Wars. A sexual reckoning. A plague.

Uncertain of what to do she picks up an unfinished project and finds herself trapped with the ghosts of writers past. What began as a novel about a member of the Bloomsbury Set becomes something else altogether. Complex, heartfelt, darkly funny and deeply moving, this is a dazzlingly original novel about what it’s like to live through a time that feels like the end of days, and how we can find comfort and answers in the past.
