There is so much to say about this novel. It is sprawling, but not sloppy; messy, but not a mess. There will be as many readings of it as there are readers. Beautiful Pictures of the Lost Homeland is challenging, it is brave, it is original, it is flawed, it is moving, it is fascinating. It is art.
-Guardian

Synopsis

A bomb blast in the London Underground rips through space and time, unearthing four stories that whirl, collide, and pass each other by. The past crosses and weaves with the present; generations are bound together and cleaved apart; future selves remember and forget who they once were. Forgiveness is sought, offered, and withheld - and as they unspool, the fragmented lives of four people become a haunting whole, where time is unknowable. And all along, fizzing and popping in a parallel reality, we, the `visitors', are led through an unsettling and volatile Museum of Curiosities.
