A NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALISTIn the paediatrics ward of a public hospital, a group of sick children is gathering. The surrogate parents of this band - a tired, overworked surgical resident and his physiotherapist - are charged with prolonging their lives using storytelling and make-believe alone. Operation Wandering Soul is a story about imagination and memory. At once a social indictment and an intensely emotional account of intimate need, it asks how we might keep alive a little longer the vanishing narratives of childhood.'Richard Powers is the most intellectually stimulating novelist at work in the English language today' Daily Telegraph
