AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A love story bounded by the extremes of loss and desire, 'The Singing' tells the story of two people who fail each other in the ravages of illness. Years later they remain haunted by what they were unable to hold onto, and struggle to find a way to resolve the past.' (Synopsis)

Notes

  • Dedication: For Alice M.
  • Epigraph: The public would say that a novel devoted to influenza lacked plot; they would complain that there was no love in it - wrongly however for illness often takes on the guise of love, and plays the same old tricks. (Virginia Woolf, On Being Ill)
