After Battersea Park

(2011)
A novel by

 
In an astonishing twist on the twins-separated-at-birth story torn from the tabloids, After Battersea Park narrates the lives of 27-year-old brothers Curt and William, the former a jazz musician living in Sydney, Australia, the latter a visual artist in Toronto, Canada. The men are drawn inexorably toward a reunion when a suicide note by Curt's adoptive mother reveals the identity of their true parents: Jilly, an Australian teacher; and Noah, a Hawaiian bartender, whose letters to his estranged sons begin to unravel the wrenching events of London's Battersea Park 23 years earlier. William and his doppelganger conflate and dissolve, wrestling with the twin masters of memory and truth, nature and nurture, empire and colony, reason and passion. Bennett has penned a masterful portrait of artists and their muses and told the tale of two men longing to be whole and wholly understood.
