 Synopsis  Information
This poignant, haunting and beautiful novel retells Michael Sala's fascinating life through fiction. From his early years in the Netherlands to moving (twice) to Australia in the 1980s, 'Michaelis' recalls the mysterious secret surrounding his estranged father, the relentless bullying of his stepfather, his mother's cheerful apathy, and his own struggles to fit into a world that often made no sense. With breathtaking prose, reminiscent of the great autobiographical novels of JM Coetzee and Michael Ondaatje, The Last Thread is the work of an exceptional new Australian writer. The Last Thread won the 2013 Commonwealth Book Prize for the Pacific region.
