We’re excited about this recent addition to our shelves, gifted by our fantastic library president -a signed copy of his latest work.
From one of our leading novelists and historians comes a breathtakingly vivid novel that recalls the three voyages Captain Cook made to the southern hemisphere, culminating in the last, fateful expedition on which he was brutally murdered.
Click here to read an interview with A.N Wilson about the book and the chance discovery which spurred his research and sparked it’s creation.
“Wilson is a great biographer and a fine novelist, and his book is as much a factual account of Forster’s life as a piece of historical fiction. He acknowledges that readers of Forster’s Voyage “will know that I have not invented very much in this novel”. Yet this is one of those astonishing lives that requires little in the way of embellishment. Wilson’s achievement is to impart a restrained imaginative power that makes its extremes seem credible.” –Alfred Hickling, The Guardian
