Praise for
Wanting
‘In
Wanting 
, Richard Flanagan has written an exquisite, profoundlymoving, intricately structured meditation about the desire for humanconnection in its many forms—that commingling of compassion,curiosity, care, lust, attraction, intrigue, selfishness and selflessnessthat is clumsily grouped under that most perilous of all abstractnouns: love.’ — 
Los Angeles Times
‘A haunting and powerful story . . . Mr. Flanagan does a magical jobof conjuring his native Tasmania as it must have appeared to Englishsettlers . . . And he enlivens his discursive narrative with somedazzling set pieces.’ —Michiko Kakutani,
The New York Times
‘Flanagan sets his novel in the wilds of nineteenth-century Tasmaniaand evokes its inhabitants with exquisite precision . . . Flanaganforges . . . an entirely unified meditation on desire, “the cost of its denial, the centrality and force of its power in human affairs.”’ —
