In the aftermath of a wholly unforeseen and deeply tragic turn of events, young Mel Seuchar strides along Longniddrie Beach in Edinburgh. He is trying to fit the broken pieces together. What really happened? How had it come about? He pictures himself and his friend Yehune; their flight out of New Zealand across the Asian Continent and all the way to Europe; Mairi, the girl they met there. Still the pieces won’t fit, the story refuses to cohere. Rebuilt in his head in a moment of wild insight, their story will become this narrative, the narrative of The Blinding Walk.
This is K.M. Ross’s second novel, and unorthodox, challenging and richly rewarding, it will establish him as a writer of the first importance.
