Isabelle the Navigator

Luke Davies

How do we find ourselves when we lose others? This striking novel from the author of the widely acclaimed cult bestseller Candy explores the life of a young woman as she deals with the deaths of the two important men in her life: her great love Matthew Smith, and her ‘gorgeous, sad father’ Tom Airly. A lyrical meditation on love, loss, betrayal, disintegration and the passage of time, Isabelle the Navigator charts Isabelle’s inner journey, as well as her actual travels - from childhood in Sydney, to love in the vast spaces off the Western Australian coast, to grief and eventually hope in Paris. This is a portrait of an extraordinarily vital woman that is at once epic and fable, swirling and intensely focused. ‘Isabelle Airly is a triumph of Davies’ poetic imagination . . [a] prodigious talent . . staggering prose' The Age ‘stunningly beautiful narrative’ The Bulletin ‘it leaves you admiring Davies’s gifts and his desire to take risks.’ The Sydney Morning Herald.
