The internationally acclaimed novel by the author of the international bestseller, The Resurrectionist. Erotic, sensuous and erudite, Wrack spins a web of lies, sex and betrayal in a novel that is as unusual as it is beautiful. While searching for the wreck of a Portuguese ship which could rewrite the history of Australia, archaeologist David Norfolk stumbles upon a corpse buried 50 years before. Determined to understand its connection to the ship, David uncovers a story of obsession, secrets and sexual passion.More
Fueled by an Ahab-ian obsession with uncovering a 16th-century Portuguese ship, archaeologist David Norfolk, the protagonist of James Bradley’s spellbinding work of postmodern historical fiction, embarks on a dizzying journey in which he crosses paths with an ex-lover, unearths a 50-year-old corpse, and encounters an irascible and terminally ill hermit who may be able to unlock the mystery surrounding the mythical vessel in this riveting listen performed by the talented Humphrey Brower, whose distinguished, reassuring tone anchors the proceedings and beautifully captures the vivid, lyrical quality of Bradley’s prose.
"Mesmeric journey into both our history and the human heart... A thrilling and assured debut." - Matthew Condon"...ingenious in its inception... with the meaning of life, love, death and obsession glowing throughout the pages." (Who Weekly)
