After fifteen years, familiarity has taken the shine off Tim Rhyder's trips to Nepal. Enlightenment has proved elusive, and lamas all too human. Still searching, Tim heads for northern Thailand, drawn by the mythology surrounding the hermit monks who live in caves. He never finds them. Kidnapped from the back of a jeep, he is catapulted into reality - where politics is bigger than the individual and life is cheap. As a political prisoner held hostage in the Burmese jungle, Tim is forced for the first time to look honestly at his life: his estrangement from his family, his absences from his son, his soured beliefs, and more particularly his perception of what it is to be a man. Penelope Trevor's first novel, Listening for Small Sounds, was shortlisted for the Australian/Vogel Literary Award, and won the Dobbie Award in the Nita B. Kibble Awards. It was also shortlisted for the Benella Award for Best Audio Book. Penelope Trevor has also written for children's television and film. She is now working on her third novel.
