Description

 

 

Tunde, the man at the centre of this novel, reflects on the places and times of his life, from his West African upbringing to his current work as a teacher of photography on a renowned New England campus.

He is a reader, a listener and a traveller drawn to many different kinds of stories: tales from history and the epic; accounts of friends, family and strangers; narratives found in books and films.

One man’s personal lens refracts entire worlds, and back again.

A weekend spent shopping for antiques is shadowed by the colonial atrocities that occurred on that land.

A walk at dusk is interrupted by casual racism.

A loving marriage is riven by mysterious tensions.

And a remarkable cascade of voices speaks out from a pulsing metropolis.

Tremor is a startling work of realism and invention that examines the passage of time and how we mark it.

It is a reckoning with human survival amidst ‘history’s own brutality, which refuses symmetries and seldom consoles’ – but it is also a testament to the possibility of joy.

An intimate novel about destabilization and catastrophe, Tremor roves freely across time, form, geography. Supple and sinuous, it is a dazzling performance from one of the most brilliant and singular minds at work today’ – Katie Kitamura
