About this Item
An intriguing story of a woman and artist in the grip of a major personal crisis and whose life becomes intertwined with that of her extraordinary, great grandmother, also called Kate. Written with great delicacy and acute understanding of the complexities of mind and heart, and enriched by the importance of film and painting in the heroine's life, Kate Wake offers an original, multi-genre narrative of woman in search of historical and contemporary truths. A novel as contemporary as the present moment, it is also a book deepened by connections with the past. Accessible, lyrical, factual, simple and complex, the writing conveys the many dimensions of the heroine's experiences and feelings. Kate Wake is a novel that narrates a working-through of loss by an individual compelled to return to the original scene (of loss), a sort of underworld rule by sleep, memory and the unconscious.
