The Life to Come
|Author:||Michelle de Kretser|
Enormously moving, gorgeously observant of physical detail, and often very funny, this new novel by the author of the Man Booker Prize-longlisted "The Lost Dog" offers meditations on intimacy, loneliness, and our flawed perception of reality.

'I so much admire Michelle de Kretser's formidable technique - her characters feel alive, and she can create a sweeping narrative which encompasses years, and yet still retain the sharp, almost hallucinatory detail.' --Hilary Mantel 'Michelle de Kretser knows how to construct a gripping story. She writes quickly and lightly of wonderful and terrible things...A master storyteller.' --A.S. Byatt
