UQP, March 2012
A few years ago I read and enjoyed The Comfort of Figs by Simon Cleary, and I was excited to receive his new book Closer to Stone in the mail. It’s about a young Australian man who travels to Northern Africa in the mid ’90s in search of his missing brother. As I wrote in the Sydney Morning Herald today, it’s ‘an engaging, page-turning adventure that takes a disturbing twist’. The book still has me feeling a little unnerved.
If you’ve had a chance to read Cleary’s work, I’d love to know what you think in the comments below.
