It’s 1866, and Walter Moody came to make his fortune on New Zealand goldfields.On arrival, he stumbles upon a tense gathering of twelve men from the region, who met in secret to discuss a series of unsolved crimes.A rich man disappeared, a prostitute tried to end her life, and a huge fortune was found in the house of a drunk luckless.Moody’s quickly sucked into the mystery: a network of destinies and fortunes that is as complex and finely shaped as the night sky.Luminaires is an extraordinary piece of fictionIt is full of narrative, linguistic and psychological pleasures, and has a diabolically intelligent and original structure of the apparatus.Written in the perfect height perfect historical register, richly evoking a mid-19th century world of shipping and banking services and goldrush expansion and recession, it is also a ghost story, and a mysterious grippingThis is a wonderful achievement and will confirm that critics and readers who Catton is one of the brightest stars in international writing firmament.
