The Curve of the Land

The Curve of the Land

by Diana Durham
Paperback
Publication Date: 31/01/2015
RRP  $21.44 $21.25
Set in 1980s Britain against the backdrop of ecological crisis, The Curve of the Land is a circumspect novel about our modern relationship with the Earth, which in this case is represented by the landscapes of western Britain. Jessica, an ardent but unfulfilled activist, joins a tour of megalithic sites hoping to find renewal from relationship burn-out and a sterile work environment. The characters on the tour are a good cross-section of the way 'new age', occult and mystical threads got grafted on to the more intellectual or 'respectable' British stock, throwing up eccentric cameos of people and comic situations. The mysterious atmosphere of the stones and her growing attraction for the charismatic tour leader builds to a final shamanic climax in the wilds of West Penwith, Cornwall. Author of 'The Return of King Arthur: Completing the Quest for Wholeness', Diana Durham explores eco-shamanism, sex magic, goddess and 'Gaia' consciousness, as well as emerging archaeological and scientific findings pertaining to the sacred sites of Britain. The Curve of the Land follows the journey of a woman in contemporary society seeking to reconnect to an ancient land and share in its spiritual topography.
