The Last Magician - Janette Turner Hospital

Virago, 1992, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Mildly bumped at head & tail of spine and corners. Some wear at DJ edges.

Four people, scattered by time and geography, are pulled back into close proximity in midlife, unable to escape their childhood trauma that binds them. Living within the violent landscape of memory, they move forever between the Queensland rainforest and the seamy underside of Brisbane and Sydney.At the vortex are the mysteriously silent woman named Cat and the Chinese Australian photographer who monitors and records everything. He is the last magician who sees that painful memories - stored, censored, re-invented - will seep into the present in the same way that the city's undertow threatens tidy streets.(Hardback Out of Print)
