Summary
This is the work of a man haunted by war and passionate for peace. It is an intensely personal, audacious odyssey, but its reach is universal. It began in Melbourne, where his father, a radical socialist humanist, set his early course; and ends in India and Japan, places to which he is drawn by Buddhism, Gandhi, and an ever-deepening love, tested and sometimes testy, for Rabindranath Tagore. Hill brings to the cruel politics of our time a spiritual perspective that deepens rather than abandons realism. His meditations on the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the Tokyo trial are often as beautiful as they are ground-breakingly original in their integration of content and literary form
