Stunningly original, Charades has stood the test of time as a major Australian work.
From the subtropical lushness of Queensland’s Tamborine Rainforest to the claustrophobic bedroom of a Boston physicist, Janette Turner Hospital’s characters breathe an atmosphere of passion and suspense. Charade Ryan, an enigmatic story-spinning Scheherazade, searches for a way to unravel the long-held secrets of her family origins. As the narrative flits between the present and the past, and truth becomes increasingly subjective, Charade weaves a rich and textural tale out of the myths of her past. This vibrant, superbly crafted novel explores the elusive boundaries between existence and imagination, memory and truth.
Charades was first released in 1988 and received widespread award recognition, including shortlistings for the Miles Franklin Award, the NBC Banjo Award for Fiction and the Adelaide Festival Awards. It was also a New York Times ‘Notable Book of the Year’.
