How to speak of the searing, unpindownable power that the past ours, our family's, our culture's wields in the present? Drawing on nine years of research, Axiomatic explores the ways we understand the traumas we inherit and the systems that sustain them. In five sections each one built on an axiom about how the past affects the present Maria Tumarkin weaves together true and intimate stories of a community dealing with the extended aftermath of a suicide, a grandmother's quest to kidnap her grandson to keep him safe, one community lawyer's struggle inside and against the criminal justice system, a larger-than-life Holocaust survivor, and the history of the author's longest friendship. In writing that is inventive, bold, and generous, Tumarkin asks questions about loss, grief, and how our particular histories inform the people we become in the world.

Review:

In taking injustice and the legacy of trauma global, cultural, personal as her subject, Maria Tumarkin's writing embodies how form and content can osmose. Axiomatic is an extraordinary enquiry into humanity, infused with empathy, from a hugely talented writer. --Sinéad Gleeson, author of Constellations

Nobody can write like Maria Tumarkin: she charges headlong into the worst and best of us, with an iron refusal to soften or decorate; sentences bare of artifice, stripped back to the bone, to the nerve; fired by raging grief and love. --Helen Garner

Maria Tumarkin s shape-shifting Axiomatic deploys all the resources of narrative, reportage and essay. It is a work of great power and beauty. --Pankaj Mishra, author of The Age of Anger
