The Ancestor Game
This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
'The Ancestor Game is like an elaborate house of many floors and wings and hidden rooms, interconnecting in surprising ways and inhabited by a richly divergent family of characters.' - Midwest Book Review
Steven Muir, Gertrude Speiss and Lang Tzu experience a dislocation, an ambivalence, at living in European Australia. Miller offers the writing of their individual stories -- the playing of the ancestor game -- as the solution to their dislocation. He poses a series of questions, and the reader, led on an enthralling journey into the ancestral dreams and present dilemmas of this rich cast of characters, is required to deduce the answers.
'A wonderful novel of stunning intricacy and great beauty.' - Michael Ondaatje
