Author: Thomas Maloney Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 09/08/2018

Death is a bird of paradise: we all know what it is, but it can be many different things that aren't at all alike. Is thirty already too late to reconsider? Natalie, usually so conscientious, can't remember why her life is following Plan B. Dan's unclouded vision of the universe has never extended to understanding his wife. But their marriage has some precious ember at its core, doesn't it? Meanwhile, trader Mike is relieved to discover that it doesn't matter if there's a void where the weightiest substance of your character should be. Fearless mountaineer Brenda sweats and trembles in a crowded room. And James, pacing and fidgeting in a cage of his own design, doesn't know how to unfollow his dreams. This vivaciously intelligent novel follows five characters as they confront a painful truth that none is expecting so soon, but that might just help them learn how to live.

Longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize 2017'A man's eye is accommodative, like his heart.'Samuel Browne's wife has left him suddenly after three years of marriage. She invites him to 'go and live a better life without me'. He must start again, and alone.And so it is that Sam finds himself deep in the English countryside in a cold but characterful old house, remote and encircled by hills, in the employment and company of an older, wiser man, a man as fond of mystery as he is of enlightenment. What is the purpose of the seemingly hopeless task set for Sam in the house's ancient library? What is the secret of the unused room? And where does a life lose its way or gain its meaning?The combe is home to a truth born of fraud, a building made of light, and a family wrecked by recklessness: loss and love reverberate around the house and around the novel, providing pleasure, pain and purpose. Combe Hall is a house designed to honour and to enthral. And this very fine debut novel does exactly the same.PRAISE FOR THOMAS MALONEY'An atmospheric novel sprinkled with literary and musical allusion.' The Sydney Morning Herald'Beautiful An intriguing gothic mystery.' The Daily Mail
