BLACK WATER

LOUISE DOUGHTY    Book Number: 87024    Product format: Paperback

By the brilliant creator of Apple Tree Yard. John Harper lies awake at night on an isolated hut on Bali, listening to the rain on the roof and believing his life may be in danger. The present is uncertain, the past at his heels. As the sounds of the night close in around him, the question he asks himself is this - what is more terrible, the future that lies in wait, or the past that is catching up with him? "An intelligent thriller so full of shadows that it prickles with the anticipatory tension of a violent storm on a muggy day." The novel is a glimpse at mid-century American Civil Rights, a thriller, a meditation on the effects of foreign policy on individuals, a modern love story and a portrait of Indonesian unrest in the 20th century. Both Kirkus and Spectator describe this as a book "For Graham Greene and John le Carré lovers." It looks intricately at race, grief and what makes a family a family, communism, historical events and the disparity of social classes as well as between Asia and the rest of the world. Faber paperback, 362pp.
