Author(s): Ashley Hay
The story of one extraordinary moment, a man falling from the sky, and surviving, and of three men who see it, in different ways and different times, as they stand on the same piece of land. An astronomer in the late 1700s, a bridgeworker in the 1930s, an expatriate banker returning home in the early 21st century.
The Body in the Clouds is a luminous novel about the power of story: the stories that define who and where we are.
Ashley Hay is the author of four books of non-fiction - The Secret, The strange marriage of Annabella Milbanke and Lord Byron, Gum: The Story of Eucalypts and their Champions, and Herbarium and Museum.
