Finely detailed tale of mountains and the mind,
This review is from: Cleaver (Paperback)
This book follows the journey of a man who at the height of his journalistic career, vilified by his son's newly published semi-autobiographical novel, flees the overwhelming demands of both his public and private lives to find refuge in a remote village in the mountains of the Tyrol. Here he battles with the demons of his past and present while struggling with a semi-hermetic existence on the fringe of a small village community.
This is an engrossing read, the past and present of the main protagonist unravelling before the reader as the characters around him are slowly drawn in more detail. Highly recommend this book; I shall seek out others by Tim Parks.
