    Napoleon's Roads
    Napoleon's Roads
    A writer questions the architecture of words, struggling to capture his ideas before they are lost; a husband excavating beneath his house becomes mesmerised by silence and disappears in search of solitude; a lighthouse keeper dreams that he is a man dreaming that he is the keeper of a lighthouse. Magnificent in its scope and imagery, David Brooks' mastery of the written word is eclipsed in this thought - provoking collection. Both evocative and experimental, Brooks' stories conjure fragments of memory and time, capturing streetscapes and heartscapes in a mosaic - style splendour. Lyrical and perceptive, brave and illuminating, Napoleon's Roads explores the richness of language and the possibilities of expression, while exemplifying some of the most sophisticated, polished and beautiful contemporary literature in Australia today.
