The Bone People: A Novel (Penguin Ink) (Paperback)
No synopsis captures the potential for this book to haunt you. This being said, the story follows a woman living a secluded life in a tower on the coast of New Zealand. She is torn from her isolation by a single father and his mute son.— Chris
At once a mystery, a love story, and an ambitious exploration of the zone where Maori and European New Zealand meet, Booker Prize-winning novel The Bone People is a powerful and unsettling tale saturated with violence and Maori spirituality.
