Secondhand. Good condition. Wear to book corners and edges.
Sunrise West is a sequel to East of Time, picking up the author’s story where that book left off. But it is also separate and self-contained, and set in a vastly different series of landscapes.
Sunrise West navigates between two worlds: the author’s wartime and post-war experiences in Europe, and his subsequent new life in Melbourne, Australia. The hallmark of the first world is darkness and light; that of the second, hope and restoration – but a restoration forever coloured by a past that cunningly refuses to give up its claim.
Like its prize-winning predecessor, Sunrise West is a personal weave of autobiography, history and imagination, rich in ideas and peopled with an array of memorable characters. Whether describing the momentous or the mundane, Jacob Rosenberg writes with passion, irony and dark humour – and above all, a compelling zest for life. (publisher blurb)
