Simon Tedeschi

In 1917, a young composer writes a suite of twenty pieces for piano. They are short, violent and strange, the music of another world.

In 1938, a young Jewish family flees Italy for Sydney, Australia. In 1942, another family, this time Polish, are nearly destroyed.

Half a century later, a young man begins to understand the role these strange visions have played in everything that came before him and all that has come to be.

Fugitive, Simon Tedeschi’s first book, straddles the borders of poetry and prose, fiction and fact, trauma and testimony, filled with what Russian poet Konstantin Balmont called the fickle play of rainbows.
