The basis for the Australian film—a powerful novel of family ruin and redemption from "a born storyteller" (St. Louis Post-Dispatch). Wanted as a material witness in a drug-smuggling case, Greg Kendall is hiding out at his family's old Chicago home. While there, he finds himself thinking about his long dead siblings, older brother Cliff and twin sister Kate. The two died in a car crash years before, and as Greg revisits and relives the memories of his childhood, he awakens long-buried secrets from the family's past—including memories of his relationship with his twin that were better left undisturbed. "A commanding writer of unusual power and delicacy." —The New Yorker "A born storyteller." —St. Louis Post-Dispatch
