Description

‘A big, ambitious novel with a rich historical sweep and a host of narrative voices. Its subject is a vicar’s ludicrous expedition in 1857 to the Garden of Eden in Tasmania, as meanwhile, in Tasmania itself, the British settlers are alternately trying to civilise and eliminate the Aboriginal population … The sort of novel that few contemporary writers have either the imagination or the stamina to sustain’ – Daily Telegraph
