NZ - Fiction

Living in idyllic Golden Bay, artist Ivan is plagued by a low frequency humming noise: is it whale song, tinnitus, electro-magnetism, a CIA weapon or the voice of God? Worse, Ivan is bored. His sensible lover, Jane, neglects her caf���������������© to support his increasingly bizarre attempts to outwit the Hum. But he is most attracted by the spiritual solutions offered by warrior-woman Xania, a fanatical t�������¢����������������ai chi teacher with links to Argentina. Xania manipulates the monstrous ego of Ivan (who is too famous for his own good) and devises a scandalous fundraising plot involving Powelliphanta, New Zealand�������¢����������������s beautiful native snails. Jane battles to keep her property out of their hands. Then Xania�������¢����������������s sinister old teacher arrives from Argentina. Some of the characters choose happiness. Some don�������¢����������������t. 247 pp.
