Bringing Something Back by John Logan (Brown University)
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Seventy years after Ken and Alec take two horses into the sea, a shadow lands on a remote beach and is cast over Brian Miller's life.

Miller survives the first weight of the shadow's falling but years later he still feels its chill presence. When he sits in his coveted seat with the phonebox view and tries to attract good thoughts; when he remembers old Alec sitting in the garden watching the tortoises shove their way through the summer grass; when psychotic neighbours terrorise his block of flats and kidnap a puppy until they run out of dog food; or when he thinks of the rock Duncan stood on by the river which became the rock stuck in Miller's head for the rest of his life...always in his mind is the shadow that landed on the beach seventy years after Ken, Alec, and the horses entered the sea together.

From contemplative tea drinking in a favourite cafe, to war, love, family tragedy, higher education, international travel, law-breaking, unemployment, isolation, literary ambition, government harassment, and spiritual quest...Miller seeks a little help from the universe as he struggles to recover something from reality's maelstrom and counter the shadow's weight.
