Summary
From the winner of the Man Booker Prize. One of the most-loved and biggest-selling literary novels in Australian history. In the winter of 1954, in a construction camp in the remote Tasmanian highlands, when Sonja Buloh was three years old and her father was drinking too much, Sonja's mother walked into a blizzard never to return. Some thirty-five years later, when Sonja visits Tasmania and her drunkard father, the shadows of the past begin to intrude ever more forcefully into the present - changing for ever his living death and her ordered life... The Sound of One Hand Clapping is about the underbelly of Australia, the barbarism of Europe, and the destiny of those in the country beyond hope who seek to redeem themselves through love. 'Heart-wrenching and beautifully written... A rare and remarkable achievement' -- Los Angeles Times
Summary
Years after leaving the home where she had grown up with an alcoholic father and a mother who disappeared one day in the middle of a blizzard, Sonja Buloh returns to Tasmania to make peace with her tortured past
