Spirit House by Mark Dapin

7:00pm, Tuesday 26 July 2016, central London

Shirley Lawes will introduce Spirit House by Mark Dapin.

Witty, wise and deeply moving, Spirit House is a remarkable novel by a major new voice in Australian fiction, a story of the fall of Singapore and life as a POW, of the bonds of life-long friendship and the bonds of grief, and of a young boy making sense of his future while old men try to live with their past.

‘This is a book destined for classic status in every sense of the word. It is powerful, poignant, moving, tragic and intensely distressing. It is a feast of a story which will almost simultaneously move you to tears and bring a smile to your face.’—ABC News
