111 Carlos Ruiz Zafon The Prince of Mist
Text Publishing 247231 Melbourne 2010 1921656352 / 9781921656354 Trade Paperback Good Condition A shudder ran through his body and he took a step back- the hand of the figure, which seconds earlier had been clenched in a fist, now lay open, its palm stretched out invitingly. For a moment the cold morning air seemed to burn in Max's throat and he could feel a throbbing in his temples. When his family moves to an old house by the sea, Max discovers an abandoned garden of mysterious statues positioned on a six-pointed star. In the centre rising out of the mist stands a clown, its arm outstretched. Then Max meets Roland, who takes him swimming through the underwater ruins of an old shipwreck near the lighthouse where he lives with his grandfather, and Max sees the uncanny six-pointed star again. But it's Roland's grandfather and his tale of the shipwreck and the circus troupe on board that makes Max realise that he is not the only one to be affected the clown's sinister presence. The Prince of Mist is an intriguing tale of good versus evil - a compelling gothic mystery for young adults from the best-selling author of The Shadow of the Wind and The Angel's Game. 202 pages.

The Submerged Cathedral, Charlotte Wood
114 Charlotte Wood The Submerged Cathedral
Vintage 233909 Australia 2004 1740512642 / 9781740512640 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Shortlisted for the Miles Franklin Award. The Submerged Cathedral is a superb, enthralling novel of love, tragedy and atonement from the acclaimed author of The Children. Set me as a seal on your heart, for love is stronger than death. Spanning many years, travelling across Australia s vast continent and through some of Europe s great cities, The Submerged Cathedral is a beguiling, heartbreaking story of paradise and the fall, of sacrifice and atonement, and of sisterly love and rivalry. Most of all, however, it is about an enduring and sacred love- a love stronger than death- and the journeys undertaken in its name. Written in spare, haunting prose, this novel is a work of the highest literary merit, as well as a timeless love story that will enthrall readers. The release of Charlotte Wood's acclaimed first novel, Pieces of a Girl, marked her as a young writer of great promise; The Submerged Cathedral thrillingly confirms that promise with astonishing assurance and lyricism. 302 pages.

Art in Australia: From Colonization to Postmodernism, Christopher Allen
118 Christopher Allen Art in Australia: From Colonization to Postmodernism
Thames & Hudson 241166 Great Britain 1997 0500203016 / 9780500203019 Softcover Near Fine Condition This book traces the history of Australian art from the settlers of Australia, the colonials trying to recreate their image of home in a foreign landscape, to postmodern artists blurring the boundaries between mediums as well as traditional themes. In this new critical survey, Christopher Allen provides a crucial nexus of historical and cultural information particular to the continent, dividing the book into six provocative chapters on Colonization, Settlement, Unsettlement, The Uninhabitable, Escape Routes, and Homeless. Acknowledging the unique social and geographical circumstances of the country, Allen argues that Australian art does indeed have a history of its own: the history of a society uprooted and transplanted, a history of strangeness and transformative beauty. 183 illus., 58 in color 224 pages.
