Eleanor Catton (Элеонора Каттон). The Luminaries (Светила)
(книга на английском языке)
Букеровская премия 2013 года
It is 1866, and Walter Moody has come to make his fortune upon the New Zealand goldfields.
On arrival, he stumbles across a tense gathering of twelve local men, who have met in secret to discuss a series of unsolved crimes.
A wealthy man has vanished, a whore has tried to end her life, and an enormous fortune has been discovered in the home of a luckless drunk.
Moody is soon drawn into the mystery: a network of fates and fortunes that is as complex and exquisitely patterned as the night sky.
