The Comfort of Figs

Author(s): Simon Clearly


'A poignant tale of secret histories and the mechanics of forgiveness' The Age 1939: a city springs from a country town in the making of a steel bridge. Three young men work on the construction, labouring precariously high above the river. Close bonds develop between them but one slip alters their lives forever. A generation later, Robbie, a young landscaper, grapples with his difficult relationship with his father, whose past is linked to the city's iconic bridge. The Comfort of Figs is the engrossing story of the birth of a city and the burden of a family secret.
