Buchbeschreibung Murray Hodder & Stoughton Sep 2014, 2014. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 197x129x16 mm. Neuware - A History of Silence is a touching memoir about a country and a landscape. It's about the devastation in Christchurch after the 2011 earthquake and the faultlines that this event opened up in Lloyd Jones' understanding of his own family. It's about how easily we erase from our history, the stories that we find inconvenient. In his typically lyrical and engaging prose, Jones embarks on a journey of discovery. On this journey he finds out more about his country and the landscape that surrounds him, but he also uncovers the truth about his family. This truth is completely unexpected and changes everything. This deeply moving book is about loss and survival and silence. 288 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781848549050
