The art historian Noah Glass, having just returned from a trip to Sicily, is discovered floating face down in the swimming pool at his Sydney apartment block. His adult children, Martin and Evie, must come to terms with the shock of their father's death. But a sculpture has gone missing from a museum in Palermo, and Noah is a suspect.

The police are investigating. None of it makes any sense. Martin sets off to Palermo in search of answers about his father's activities, while Evie moves into Noah's apartment, waiting to learn where her life might take her. Retracing their father's steps in their own way, neither of his children can see the path ahead. Gail Jones's mesmerising new novel tells a story about parents and children, and explores the overlapping patterns that life makes.

The Death of Noah Glass is about love and art, about grief and happiness, about memory and the mystery of time.
