A provocative, urgent novel about time, family and how a changing planet might change our lives, from James Bradley, acclaimed author of The Resurrectionist and editor of The Penguin Book of the Ocean.
The city of Adelaide and its surrounding areas have a very dark history. . .
'Bradley's writing is spare and precise, his images haunting, and his plot reimagines the well-known fairy tale from the point of view of Rapunzel's darker, wilder sister... I have read many hundreds of reinventions of this tale. Beauty's Sister is one of the most powerful.' Kate Forsyth
Now filmed by Clint Eastwood, this is not only a personal and moving story, but one of the finest ever descriptions of war.
A haunting and powerful story of passion, betrayal, obsession and loss.
