Waterstones Says

Australian Booker-winning author Richard Flanagan brings us a novel that is at once poignant and excoriating. Combining the realities of the contemporary world with folk-story imagination and magical realism, he explores the complexities of modern life, nature and humanity. 

Signed Edition

A standard edition is available here.

An ember storm of a novel, this is Booker Prize-winning novelist Richard Flanagan at his most moving-and astonishing-best.

In a world of perennial fire and growing extinctions, Anna's aged mother is dying-if her three children would just allow it. Condemned by their pity to living she increasingly escapes through her hospital window into visions of horror and delight.

When Anna's finger vanishes and a few months later her knee disappears, Anna too feels the pull of the window. She begins to see that all around her others are similarly vanishing, but no one else notices. All Anna can do is keep her mother alive. But the window keeps opening wider, taking Anna and the reader ever deeper into a strangely beautiful novel about hope and love and orange-bellied parrots.

“An astonishing, excoriating book that demands to be read widely.”

Following the devastating Australian bush fires last year, Flanagan writes what amounts to a SCREAM on climate change and global warming that is harsh, unsettling and unique.

“Excellent”

This really struck a chord with me - one of the most effective pieces of fiction relating to the climate crisis thus far. Set amid the apocalyptic Australian wildfires (which feels like decades ago now) but also... More
