From the award-winning author of Only the Animals, Ceridwen Dovey has created an unputdownable novel of obsession, guilt, and the power of the past to possess the present. In the Garden of the Fugitives is a masterpiece of duplicity and counterplay, as brilliantly illuminating as it is surprising – about the obscure workings of guilt in the human psyche, the compulsion to create, and the dangerous morphing of desire into control. It is the breakthrough work of one of Australia’s most exciting emerging writers

“A spellbinding pas de deux of passion and obsession. Mesmerising and mind-expanding. I was transfixed.” – Anna Funder

Published by Penguin Random House
