Synopsis:

By the author of The Sound of One Hand Clapping. Reprint.


Review:

"Densely packed, Flanagan's first novel...is an intense ride, quirky and dramatic, that brings a far-off land to gritty life."

Daneet Steffens, Entertainment Weekly, 03/30/2001

Book Description: Grove/Atlantic, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 210 x 141 mm. Brand New Book. Death of a River Guide was called haunting and ambitious by The New York Times Book Review and a remarkable achievement by The Washington Post Book World. It confirms Richard Flanagan s place among the world s most remarkable voices.Aljaz Cosini is leading a group of tourist on a raft tour down Tasmania s wild Franklin River when his greatest fear is realized -- a tourist falls over-board. An ordinary man with many regrets, Aljaz rises to an uncharacteristic heroism, and offers his own life in trade. Trapped under a rapid and drowning, Aljaz is beset with visions both horrible and fabulous. He sees Couta Ho, the beautiful, spirited woman he loved, and witnesses his uncle Reg having his teeth pulled and sold to pay for a ripple-iron house. He sees cities grow from the wild rain forest and a tree burst into flower in midwinter over his grandfather s forest grave.As the entirety of Tasmanian life -- flora and fauna -- sings him home, Aljaz arrives at a world where dreaming reasserts its power over thinking, where his family tree branches into stories of all human families, stories that ground him in the land and reveal the soul history of his country.
