Richard Flanagan ✓ 5 Summary Download ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ Richard Flanagan The Living Sea of Waking Dreams Free download º PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free In a world of perennial fire and growing extinctions Anna’s aged mother is dying if her three children would just allow it Condemned by their pity to living she increasingly escapes through her hospital window in. This beautiful little bird is the critically endangered orange bellied parrot and it has a surprising role to play in the resolution of Richard Flanagan s magnificent new novel I place it here because its plight is one of the catalysts for the bookThe Living Sea of Waking Dreams is Flanagan s eighth novel and it may very well be his best ever Some of it is confronting but there s good reason for it to be and as Davy suggests when he s pondering the predictability of stories it s ok that there are things that are just entertainment but if they don t mean anything that s not greatShouldn t stories work towards something that we can t get anywhere else he said It wouldn t be enough sure But maybe it would be something p144In this novel Flanagan does indeed work towards something that we can t get anywhere else Sure there are sideswipes at the banks impoverishing hard working self funded retirees and at politicians who fail the people but there are two issues of much greater significance that Flanagan deals with united under the umbrella that we re just not paying attention You might remember that paying attention was the theme of this year s superb Melbourne Writers Festival too The novel begins with the extraordinary image of Anna s vanished finger soon to be followed by a vanished knee There s no accident no pain no blood just a uiet disappearance that other people don t even notice They really don t noticeIt s a metaphor of course It s to draw our attention to the way we just don t notice the way our world is becoming compromised beyond repair We just don t notice the uiet extinction of uniue species and most of us are too distracted to notice the slowly advancing catastrophe of our over heating planet Flanagan is merciless in showing how our preoccupation with trivia blinded us to the inexorable future until last summer when the mercury soared and Australia burned and our cities were swathed in smoke and we knew that the burned wildlife were the pitiful remnants of just the ones that we could still see All over Australia there are people who will read Flanagan s novel remembering the horror and the fear and the sense of doom Words like apocalypse were tossed around by journalists but we were living it and now as summer approaches many of us are dreading it instead of happily anticipating the joy of the beautiful Australian summers that we grew up with This novel forces us to think about last summer and how it s coming for us againThis devastating world is the background for a intimate story about an issue much closer to home for those who have elderly parents Anna s ageing mother is dying and her children will not let her die Anyone who s been through this time in a parent s life knows that it s a delicate situation Anna s brother Tommy has accepted the inevitability of her death but her other brother Terzo is determined that everything that can be done will be done with no expense or effort spared And because he is a bombastic venture capitalist with influential friends and because he bullies Anna into siding with him and because the hospital is afraid he will go to the media and sue Francie undergoes a succession of unwarranted medical interventions that will make any empathetic reader weepFlanagan is too wise a novelist to be simplistic about this There is a back story about these three siblings who used to be four and there are reasons for Anna s heartlessness in refusing to accede to her mother s wish to be free from painTo read the rest of my review please visit
