|Plot Summary of Undercurrents: A Novel|
|"The basis of this story is a woman leaving her husband and taking her child to a seaside town in France with 10,000 Francs in cash. The father dispatches a private detective to track her down. But the story is so sensuously and descriptively written, the prose poetic and haunting that you read the book as if in a dream being caressed by the imagery of the words. There is an estate agent who fancies his chances, and a surfer who befriends both mother and daughter as subplots. A beautiful dreamlike book.
John Marcel, Resident Scholar
