‘Strong, streamlined and remarkably lovely’ – Francine Prose, THE NEW YORK TIMES

GILGAMESH is the epic story of a mother's search for the father of her child - from Australia to Armenia via England and Mesopotamia - all under the shadow of the imminent, and soon to be very real, Second World War. Narrated in a clear, poetic voice, it is a portrayal of the different journeys we choose to take through life and what happens when ordinary people get caught up in extraordinary, seismic events.

Reviews

'Streamlined, strong and remarkably lovely . . . Reading GILGAMESH is like watching a magician who can do many things rapidly, expertly and all at once.' Francine Prose, NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
