Description

Specially selected to launch University of Western Australia Press's new adult fiction list, A New Map of the Universe is a literary work that will attract a wide general audience with its compelling narrative and engaging characters. This elegant, lyrical work moves between Perth, Melbourne and the English village of Granston and shifts between two generations as it illuminates the stories of Grace and her parents Peter and Madeleine. With sensitivity and psychological insight, the author explores the tragic consequences when people cease communicating with each other, and the suffering imposed on children by adults crippled by grief. But the story is also about the nurturing power of love and compassion, and the resilience of the human spirit.
