FROM THE WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2014

Trapped within a waterfall on the wild Franklin River, Tasmanian river guide, Aljaz Cosini, lies drowning. As the tourists he has been guiding down the river seek to save him, Aljaz is beset by visions horrible and fabulous. As the rapids rise, Aljaz relives not just his own life but also his country’s dreaming.

Review:

"Haunting" (New York Times)

"Stunning" (Sunday Times)

"A torrent of a book – take the plunge" (Independent)

"This novel of spiritual desolation and redemption gathers such an awesome, tragic momentum that the fantastical aspects seem as crucial to the story as do the raging rivers, sheer gorges and imposing rainforests" (Washington Post)

"Death of a River Guide is possessed of both a fierce, seething energy and a limpid, unexpected tranquillity" (Irish Times)

"One of the most auspicious debuts in Australian writing" (Times Literary Supplement)

"A vivid, voluptuous, exhilarating writer" (Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description:
