On August 20, eight weeks from now, Penguin Canada will release my book, The Water Here is Never Blue. In the lead up to that date I’ll be blogging weekly about some of the book’s themes and imagery. My posts won’t be about the book, but they will reflect it, quote from it and give a taste of what’s to come on the 20th.
Water, secrets, fathers and daughters, belonging, travel and culture shock, death, colonialism, monkeys and departures are a few of the themes that run, like water, through the book and through my life.
PS Goodreads is giving away 10 copies of The Water Here is Never Blue between now and July 10. Click the link to request a copy. http://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/48063-the-water-here-is-never-blue-intrigue-and-lies-from-an-uncommon-childho
