Memories of a Lost Thesaurus
“The problem with life is there is just too much of it. You identify one thing and it leads to another. Nothing is simply one thing only…It’s like trying to read through a foreign thesaurus. You look up one word and you find another twenty. If you look up even one of those twenty, you are already forty meanings away from the first one. And there’s a good chance one of those brings you back to the start.”
The lives of Alice, Cath and Patrick are thrown into disarray when their new build apartments are suddenly flooded. Only it’s not quite clear if that’s really where it started. Alice is tormented by a ghost from her past, and Cath by a more substantial one in her present. But whose fault is it? The predator? Or the prey?
And which is which?
Easier, all round, to blame the river.
Nice People Said…
“Have just devoured this in 3 days. Brilliant and very readable, but still manages to be both clever and beautiful…”
“A real page turner…”
“The characters are so human and real and I instantly warmed to them. The story left me thinking about it…”
“If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumber’d here
While these visions did appear…”
But what if you haven’t?
Are you an audience member?
Or a witness?
