The Lives of Shadows is set agains the rich backdrop of post World War II Damascus and evokes a romantic, long-vanished Middle East.
Interweaving poetic prose and evocative colour illustration, Hodgson tells the story of an Englishman, Julian, who is transfixed by the beautiful house he has inherited. When threatened with its loss, he struggles to unravel the history of his beloved house and his deep connection to it. All the while, a strangely protective and tender being hovers in the shadows, confounding Julian’s attempts to hold onto both his home and his grip on reality.
