The World Beneath

Author: Cate Kennedy Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/10/2012

Acclaimed by the New Yorker as a 'furious and perceptive' writer of 'sharp, evocative and poetic' fiction, Cate Kennedy has a rare talent - the ability to write life with needlepoint emotional precision. In The World Beneath, her first novel, she has used all of her gifts to craft a gorgeous, stark family drama - a story of a father and daughter lost in the eerie, treacherous beauty of the Tasmanian mountains. Fifteen years after he walked out on his wife and child, Richard takes his teenage daughter on a mountain hike. Against the jaw-dropping beauty of the Tasmanian mountain forests and lakes, he hopes he will be able to bridge the rift between them. But Sophie and her father soon find themselves out of their depth - lost in a treacherous, freezing landscape, two strangers battling against each other and the hostile elements.
