From Amazon:

Winner of the Booker Prize in 1985, "The Bone People" is the story of Kerewin, a despairing part-Maori artist who is convinced that her solitary life is the only way to face the world. Her cocoon is rudely blown away by the sudden arrival during a rainstorm of Simon, a mute six-year-old whose past seems to hold some terrible trauma. In his wake comes his foster-father Joe, a Maori factory worker with a nasty temper. The narrative unravels to reveal the truths that lie behind these three characters, and in so doing displays itself as a huge, ambitious work that tackles the clash between Maori and European characters in beautiful prose of a heartrending poignancy.

Journal Entry 3 by PAYDAY from Preston, Lancashire United Kingdom on Tuesday, May 19, 2009
Book in poor condition as it seems to be a very old paper back. I found it in the Harris Public Library in the centre of Preston. It took a long time before I started to read it, but once I started I was hooked.
