Michael Shamanov grapples with the idea of his mother's life and her desire to finish it. Perhaps it's her life he has been running away from and not his own. 'The story of a life is a secret as life itself. A life that can be explained is no life at all.' Elias Canetti Is it possible to write about the living without imagining them dead? Michael Shamanov is a man running away from life's responsibilities. His marriage is over, he barely sees his son and he hasn't seen his mother since banishing her to a nursing home two years earlier. A successful screen writer, Michael's encounter with his mother's nurse leads him to discover that the greatest story he's never heard may lie with his dying mother. And perhaps it's her life he's been running away from and not his own. Is the past ever finished? Should we respect another's silence? And if so, is it ever possible to understand and put to rest the strange idea of family that travels through the flesh? From the Miles Franklin shortlisted author of No One comes a haunting gem of family secrets and impossible decisions.
