Description

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.
