Description:
A brilliant and compulsively readable story of truth, lies and identity from one of Australia's finest writers. 'So then, here it is. The unadorned un-self-flattering gospel, the never-before-told story our intricately intertwined lives ...Listen: I know things that no one else knows. Trust me. ' Manhattan, 1996: the trial of the Vanderbilt claimant is finally coming to an end. The case - long, complex, riven with unknowns, attracting huge media and social interest - has been seeking to establish whether or not a certain man is the son of the fabulously wealthy and well-connected Vanderbilt family. The son went missing, presumed dead, while serving in the Vietnam war. There is huge fortune, prestige and status at stake. But is the man - a handsome cattle farmer from Queensland - really the Vanderbilt heir? And if so, why does he seem so reluctant to be found? From one of our foremost novelists, The Claimant is a compelling and ravishingly readable novel about the fluid, shifting and ultimately elusive nature of identity and the reasons why people seek to change their names, their identities or their personalities. 'A genuine page turner with ...verve, fascination and mystery' ABR 'Artful, absorbing and ambitious' Sydney Morning Herald 'Daring, expansive' The Age
