Description du livre University of Queensland Press, Australia, 2015. Paperback. État : New. 196 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Born from a secret liaison between a British mother and an Icelandic father, Kari Gislason was the subject of a promise - a promise elicited from his father to not reveal his identity. The Icelandic city of Reykjavik, where Kari was born, was also home to his father and his father s wife and four children - none of whom knew of Kari s existence. Moving regularly between Iceland and Australia, he grew up aware of his father s identity, but understanding that it was the subject of a secret pact between his parents. At the age of 27, he makes a decision to break the pact and contacts his father s other family. What follows, and what leads him there, makes for a riveting journey over landscapes, time and memory. Kari travels from the freezing cold winters of Iceland to the shark net at Sydney s Balmoral, to an unsettled life in the English countryside to the harsh yellow summer of Brisbane and back again. He traces the steps of his mother who, in the mid-1960s, answered an ad in The Times for an English-speaking secretary and found herself in Iceland among the Army of Foreign Secretaries , and in the arms of a secret lover. Iceland becomes the substitute for the father Kari never really knew as he discovers the meaning of home and closes the circle of his own fatherless life. N° de réf. du libraire AAV9780702239069
