Publishers Description: Since its first publication in 1997, Richard Flanagan's classic story of migration and love has become one of the most-loved and biggest-selling literary novels in Australian history. In the winter of 1954, in a construction camp in the remote Tasmanian highlands, when Sonja Buloh was three years old and her father was drinking too much, Sonja's mother walked into a blizzard never to return. Some thirty-five years later, when Sonja visits Tasmania and her drunkard father, the shadows of the past begin to intrude ever more forcefully into the present - changing forever his living death and her ordered life... THE SOUND OF ONE HAND CLAPPING is about the underbelly of Australia, the barbarism of Europe, and the destiny of those in the country beyond hope who seek to redeem themselves through love. 'Heart-wrenching and beautifully written... A rare and remarkable achievement' -- LOS ANGELES TIME
