About this title

Synopsis:

A sweeping, beautifully told, heartbreaking novel of romance, war and adventure: a British mapmaker looks back on his life and lost chance at love

A magical, memorable novel in the spirit of The Remains of the Day or The English Patient, Triangulation tells the dramatic story of three people: John Hopkins, a retired mapmaker who spent 40 years of his life helping England chart her many territories and provinces; Laurance Wallace, his handsome, well-born roommate who explored 1950's Africa on behalf of the British government; and Helen Gardner, the woman they both loved. A mis-sent letter sends Hopkins on a journey to find Helen, and into his own past, and as the novel unfolds we learn of the tragedy that changed all their lives forever.

Romantic and nostalgic, Triangulation perfectly captures the essence of a more innocent age as it tells an unforgettable story of doomed love.

From the Publisher:

"Very brave and very clever....Well-crafted and ultimately moving." --Time Out London

"It is hard to praise Triangulation enough. . . . Syntactically immaculate style . . . impressive for its economy and elegance." --New Statesman

"There is much enjoyment in this carefully crafted work....Whitaker won acclaim for his first novel Eclipse of the Sun. His second, a clever, beautifully judged piece of writing, consolidates his reputation." --Financial Times
