'Careless' by Deborah Robertson
Picador Books 2007, softcover, 294 pages.
In very good condition, all pages clean.

Australian author Deborah Robertson's acclaimed first novel, shortlisted for a number of literary prizes including the prestigious Miles Franklin Award in 2007.

"A tragic event at her summer day camp changes eight-year-old Pearl's life forever and brings her closer to two strangers - Sonia, who is learning to live alone in the suburbs without her husband; and Adam, a young sculptor whose art tries to make sense of mortality. Timely in its references to the post-9/11 world and moving in its restrained exploration of the ways we struggle with grief and try to memorialize the dead, Careless will resonate with readers everywhere as a story about contemporary violence, family, and human connection."

“Compelling…Utterly unsentimental and warmly confirmatory of the resilience of the human spirit.” ~ Daily Mail (U.K.)

“Stunning…Robertson’s writing is beautiful, poetic and heartfelt. She explores, most tenderly, the self-discovery that can come with bereavement." ~ The Times (U.K.)

“She is best as a miniaturist, in the style of Helen Dunmore, her observations as carefully chosen and charged with feeling as pebbles placed on a grave…Careless is an elegy for the lost and the grieving, but it also offers hope. It should deeply affect the rest of us.” ~The Guardian (U.K.)
