The Direction of Our Fear

Author(s): David Briggs (University of Cambridge)

NZ - Fiction

On a morning commuter train in New Zealand's capital city, Wellington, the lives of three people briefly intersect. Sally is a 17-year-old, tentatively stepping into womanhood. Brendan is a middle-aged widower, living in the shadow of his wife's death. Tamas is a Hungarian immigrant, missing his wife and child as he struggles to begin a new life far from home. Meanwhile, in a nondescript building near Dunedin's Otago University, Farida translates messages for the security services and catches glimpses of a plot that could threaten them all. Author David Briggs explores themes of love and loss and the tangle of human relationships - and of the struggle to choose our destiny in a shifting and uncertain world."
