From the author of the critically acclaimed "Troll," the new novel from Johanna Sinisalo is full of her trademark style, surreal invention, and savage humorSet in Australasia, this is the story of a young Finnish couple who have embarked on the hiking trip of a lifetime, with "Heart of Darkness" as their only reading matter. Conrad s dark odyssey turns out to be a prescient choice as their trip turns into a tortuous thriller, with belongings disappearing, and they soon find themselves at the mercy of untamed nature, seemingly directed by the local kakapoa highly intellegent parrot threatened with extinction.Thisis a skillful portrait of the unquenchable desire of Westerners for the pure and the primitive, revealing the dark side of the explorer s desirethe insatiable need to control, to invade, and leave one s mark on the landscape. But what happens when nature starts to fight back?"
