Elegiac and seductive, Belomor is the frontier where truth and invention meet-where fragmentsfrom distant lives intermingle, and cohere. A man seeks out the father figure who shaped hispicture of the past. A painter seeks redemption after the disasters of his years in northernAustralia. A student of history travels into the depths of religion, the better to escape the demonsin his mind. A filmmaker seeks out freedom and open space, and looks into the murk and sedimentof herself.
Four chapters- four journeys through life, separate, yet interwoven as the narrative unfolds. Inthis entrancing new book from one of our most original writers, we meet European dissidentsfrom the age of postwar communism, artists in remote Australia, snake hunters, opal miners anddesert magic healers. Belomor is a meditation on time, and loss- on how the most bitterrecollections bring happiness, and the meaning of a secret rests in the thoughts surrounding it.
