Ahab's Daughter


... In this fresh experiment within the larger literary project, following America’s Children, Thackara evokes an antithesis to the patriarchal thermonuclear powers of destruction, in the female anima’s powers of love. Set against the heat and intensity of a Mediterranean summer, Ahab’s Daughter meditates on the tensions between Old and New World, and on the priorities of global Realpolitik. Classically sensual, vivid to the point of fever, the book is a love story of distinction and visionary sweep
