Three Dog Night/Goldsworthy, P/Paper/0140281037/S007-B
Is it possible to be too much in love? After ten years in London, Martin Blackman returns to Adelaide with his wife and fellow psychiatrist Lucy, blissfully happy. But then he introduces her to his old friend Felix, once a brilliant surgeon, now barred from practising and changed beyond recognition. In the complex triangle that develops, Martin must decide just how far he is prepared to go for Felix. So begins the darkest of journeys for all three of them…
"An intense and brilliant novel about he fathomless human capacity for self-deception…a work of concentrated formal elegance that confirms Goldsworthy's status as one of Australia's best novelists." - James Ley, Sydney Morning Herald.
"Lyrical, sexual and highly involving, without a single false note and charged with that pervasive Goldsworthian disquiet." - Robert Drewe, The Age.
"Goldsworthy…once again challenges us to meet him on his unsparing and venturesome terms. This book is a call to alert Australian readers to reckon with one of our best novelists." - Peter Pierce, The Bulletin.
