    Ambitious doesn’t even begin to describe
    Tom Keneally’s latest book. The venerable
    novelist has created parallel narratives of
    two old men dying: one an 82-year-old
    filmmaker with oesophageal cancer living
    in modern-day Sydney; the other a learned
    man who was the first to be ritually buried in
    what is now Australia 42,000 years ago, an
    imagined equivalent of Mungo Man. Keneally
    has created a new kind of language for
    Learned Man’s thoughts as he discovers his
    fate. And while the author warns this is not
    a roman-à-clef, it’s hard not to see Keneally
    in the filmmaker. More than anything, this
    novel is about mortality and humanity – and
    the relationship between the two.
