The Life to Come
Michelle De Kretser

Paperback $32.99 - Allen & Unwin
Fiction - Published: 27/Sep/2017 - ISBN: 9781760296568

Set in Sydney, Paris and Sri Lanka, The Life to Come is a mesmerising novel about the stories we tell and don't tell ourselves as individuals, as societies and as nations. Pippa is a writer who longs for success. Celeste tries to convince herself that her feelings for her married lover are reciprocated. Ash makes strategic use of his childhood in Sri Lanka but blots out the memory of a tragedy from that time. Driven by riveting stories and singular characters, De Kretser's novel is a meditation on intimacy, loneliness and our flawed perception of other people.
