Book DescriptionIt began with a spark...A house is burning. Its six tenants include a failed priest, a naturalist, a neurosurgeon and a photographer. Their landlord's relationship to them is both intimate and shadowy. At times he shares their obsessions and memories. He will also share their fate.The passions of these individuals reach beyond the dying house that holds them. One recalls a lonely childhood, another the cremation grounds of India, another an African refugee camp. But will their stories be consumed forever by the flames?
Editorial ReviewThubron returns with what might be his masterpiece... Thubron's prose shines a penetrating light on the nature of memory and being human. Sublime. -- Simon Humphreys * Mail on Sunday * "Intensely moving" -- Tim Martin * Sunday Telegraph * "An engrossing, unsettling and brutally beautiful masterpiece." -- John Harding * Daily Mail * "Each life told with all this writer's irresistible narrative gift" -- Ursula K. Le Guin * Guardian * "Medicine owes an equal debt of gratitude to him for evoking a journey through the brain with the same adventurous and beguiled spirit as he might a rainforest or ancient city... With the ease of a master craftsman he makes up new words...lovingly evokes the extraordinary places he has passed through... This outstanding novel confirms that there is nowhere Thubron fears to tread." -- Melissa Katsoulis * The Times *
