A Listing!

I never expected At the Edge of the Solid World to land a spot on an end-of-year list, but with thanks again to Kerryn Goldsworthy it’s one of the Australian Book Review‘s books of 2020:

This beautifully written novel places individual and personal human grief in the context of various massive-scale real-life tragedies, tacitly making the argument that the former is not diminished by the latter, and explores the implications of a claim made by the narrator in its final pages: ‘the body is holy and there’s no accounting for all that is lost when the body is gone’.
