Harry Hartog's review

It's breath-taking. Flanagan can only be managing to express a quarter of what he feels, far beyond the speed with which his pen is able to write. It is both wondrous, and hear wrenching, to the point where you understand that there may be beauty in death, and serendipity within the chaos of life. I recommend this to lovers of Australian literature, and curious minds - Ben, Marketing Manager

Publisher's description

Beginning at a love hotel by Japan's Inland Sea and ending by a river in Tasmania, Question 7 is about the choices we make about love and the chain reaction that follows.

By way of H. G. Wells and Rebecca West's affair through 1930s nuclear physics to Flanagan's father working as a slave labourer near Hiroshima when the atom bomb is dropped, this daisy chain of events reaches fission when Flanagan as a young man finds himself trapped in a rapid on a wild river not knowing if he is to live or to die.

At once a love song to his island home and to his parents, this hypnotic melding of dream, history, place and memory is about how our lives so often arise out of the stories of others and the stories we invent about ourselves.
