The Undiscovered Country (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Set in the lush rain forests of Papua New Guinea, this deeply evocative first novel is both a haunting family saga and a remarkable rendering of a clash of cultures. With The Undiscovered Country, Samantha Gillison asserts herself as an exciting, emotionally fearless new voice in contemporary literature.Despite their misgivings about bringing their young daughter, Taylor, to such a remote and wild place, Peter and June Campbell feel certain that, during a year of medical research for Peter's doctoral thesis on Papua New Guinea, they will find new meanings for themselves and their marriage. But once settled in the village of Abini, June and Peter realize that what seemed important to them in New England -- the success of Peter's Harvard career -- seems meaningless in the jungle. Meanwhile, Taylor runs freely among the villagers and begins to speak, sing, and think in the Abini language. As time passes, Peter and June slowly discover that their daughter is becoming an utter stranger to them.Under the pressures of existence in an alien culture, the ties that bind the Campbells together begin to come undone, and the dark undercurrents of their feelings for one another rise inexorably to the surface. Samantha Gillison's deeply evocative prose renders emotion as palpably as it describes the culture and incredible rain forests of Papua New Guinea. In The Undiscovered Country, she takes us on a harrowing expedition that culminates in a shocking, uncompromising vision of the fragility of the family unit.
