Read full description of the books The Perpetual Ending:Jane and Eugenie Ingrams are mirror-image twins, and thus exact opposites. Halves of a whole, they are inseparable, each understanding her world through the other. But when Lucy, their artistic mother, moves her daughters from Deep River to Toronto (leaving behind a bewildered husband), she finds she can?t entirely escape the remains of their troubled marriage. Eugenie thrives in the jumble of urban life, but Jane is sickened by its underside: the mess of lost souls who live on the streets, the garbage, the noise and the violence. When their father eventually seeks them out, Jane is relieved for the chance to go back to Deep River. Eugenie agrees to return for the sake of her beloved sister -- a soon-to-be-tragic concession. Years later, Jane is a writer in Vancouver, living with her lover, Simon, a gifted illustrator. Although troubled by her past, she finds solace (and commercial success) in the rich, fabulist tales she and Simon create -- which are expertly woven throughout the book -- tales of people born with extraordinary qualities: horns, the gift of prophesy, spiderwe hair or unquenchable thirst. Wondrous, inventive and brimming with charm, The Perpetual Ending is an exploration of love and artistry that shows the world as a whole, in all its grotesqueness and beauty. And it uncovers the surprising ways we sometimes arrive at the heart of one story through the telling of others.
Read information about the authorI’m Kristen den Hartog, the author of And Me Among Them, published in the U.S. as The Girl Giant. My earlier novels include Water Wings, The Perpetual Ending, and Origin of Haloes. My first non-fiction book, The Occupied Garden: A Family Memoir of War-torn Holland, was written with my sister, Tracy Kasaboski, and explores the life of our father’s family during the Second World War. I’m currently at work on another collaboration with my sister, this time about our mother’s family in Edwardian London’s poorest neighbourhoods. I live in Toronto with my husband and daughter and our two beagle-ish dogs.
