The Cartography Of Others Paperback / softback
A Japanese soprano sets sail for arid, haunted Corsica where she seeks her lost voice.
A nude woman at the window of a Hong Kong hotel watches her lover dine in an adjacent building, but is her desire faltering?
With a young son and her photographer partner, a journalist traverses Mali to interview an irascible musician.
A son relives his mother's last hours before a hiking accident in the Italian Dolomites, while in London a grieving family takes in an ex-soldier from the Balkan wars, unaware of the man's demons.
The Cartography Of Others takes us from fumy Accra to suburban Sydney, from scruffy Paris to pre-fundamentalist Mali.
Each bewitchingly recounted story conveys a location as vital as the fitful, contemplative characters themselves.
Lives are mapped, unpicked, and crafted across vivid, lingering terrains.
