"Outlandishly clever, ingenious . . . There's no question that David Whitehouse is a writer to watch." Janet Maslin, New York Times
When the black box flight recorder of a plane that went missing 30 years ago is found at the bottom of the sea, a young man named Dove begins to remember a past that isn't his. The memories belong to a rare flower hunter in 1980s New York, whose search led him around the world and ended in tragedy.
Restless and lonely in present-day London, Dove is quickly consumed by the memories, which might just hold the key to the mystery of his own identity and what happened to the passengers on that doomed flight, The Long Forgotten.
The Long Forgotten is a thrilling mystery about memory and identity from David Whitehouse, the award-winning author of Bed and Mobile Library.
PRAISE FOR THE LONG FORGOTTEN
"Powerful, eccentric . . . Whitehouse's writing is energetic and pacey, spiked with startling moments of tenderness and superbly controlled" The Times
"This is a wonderful book, its different strands weaving around each other and coming together in the most fantastic conclusion." Adam Kay, author of This is Going to Hurt
"Once the thorns of The Long Forgotten get into you, the book stays with you all day until you can get back to it... Strange and powerful, this is a complex story of love, loss and obsession." Grazia
