9781742588988: Extinctions

***WINNER OF THE 2017 MILES FRANKLIN LITERARY AWARD*** "He hated the word 'retirement', but not as much as he hated the word 'village', as if ageing made you a peasant or a fool." Herein lives the village idiot. Professor Frederick Lothian, retired engineer, world expert on concrete, and connoisseur of modernist design, has quarantined himself from life by moving to a retirement village. His wife, Martha, is dead and his two adult children are lost to him in their own ways. Surrounded and obstructed by the debris of his life-objects he has collected over many years and tells himself he is keeping for his daughter-he is determined to be miserable. When a series of unfortunate incidents forces him and his neighbour, Jan, together, he begins to realise the damage done by the accumulation of a lifetime's secrets and lies, and to comprehend his own shortcomings. Finally, Frederick Lothian has the opportunity to build something meaningful for the ones he loves. Humorous, poignant and galvanising by turns, Extinctions is a novel about all kinds of extinction-natural, racial, national, and personal-and what we can do to prevent them. [Subject: Fiction]

About the Author :

William McInnes is one of Australia's most popular stage and screen actors, and with the publication of his memoir A Man's Got to Have a Hobby and his novel Cricket Kings, he has become a much-loved writer too. In 2006 A Man's Got to Have a Hobby was selected as one of the Books Alive 50 Great Reads and William was named 'Australian Newcomer of the Year' at the Austraian Book Industry Awards, and in 2007 Cricket Kings was shortlisted in the 'Australian General Fiction Book of the Year' category for these awards. William received critical and public acclaim for his leading role in the film Look Both Ways, written and directed by his wife Sarah Watt. His roles in SeaChange and Blue Heelers have already made him a household name, as well as roles in Curtin and East West 101. William grew up in Queensland and has travelled extensively throughout Australia. He now lives in Melbourne with Sarah Watt and their two children.

Review :

Peppered with clever observations, the writing is sharp and the interactions in Extinctions are complex, building a rewarding narrative about being lost but ultimately getting found. PORTIA LINDSAY, BOOKS+PUBLISHING
