Biography; True stories
Ranging from remote provinces in China and Cambodia to pre- and post-war Yiddish Poland, Kurdish Iraq and Iran, and Indigenous and present-day Melbourne, Arnold Zable's quartet of stories depicts the ebbs and flows of trauma and healing, memory and forgetting, the ancient and the contemporary. And ever-recurring journeys in search of belonging.

Reviews for The Watermill

'Though based on real historical moments, The Watermill reads like a novel, so skilful is Zable's storytelling. The book is full of tales about displacement and survival; the author's compassion polishes the grit in these extraordinary characters.' * Big Issue * 'Arnold Zable has given voice to all those thousands who lived through atrocity, war, oppression and horror.' * Herald Sun * 'I can think of no other writer who describes the aching heart of humanity with as much wisdom and compassion as Arnold Zable. The Watermill brings gentle light to some dark places. Whatever ails the human race, Zable is surely part of the solution.' * Michael McGirr * 'This is a man who truly believes in the power of stories.' * Age * 'Zable elevates history into near mythical tales of wonder.' * Australian *
