Selected as an Amazon.ca Best Book of 2013, a Canada Reads Top 40 Pick, and a NOW Magazine Book of the Year
An accusation, regardless of truth, has its own life when let loose in the world.
Accusation, hailed by the Globe and Mail as "a psychological thriller . . . deeply considered, calm on the surface yet, on closer reading, full of ambiguities," again proves Bush to be one of Canada's finest authors. Examining the impracticability of determining "truth," Bush crafts a tale the Montreal Gazette believes "could almost be a crime novel of the Scandinavian variety, striding headlong into the murkier reaches of human motivation."
While in Copenhagen, journalist Sara Wheeler happens upon a touring Ethiopian circus. After a friend begins a documentary about the circus, unsettling charges begin to float to the surface — disturbing tales of sexual and physical abuse. Accounts and anecdotes mount, denunciations fly, and while we strive to untangle the narrative slipknots, the concept of "truth" begins to unravel.
Travelling from Canada to Ethiopia and Australia, Accusation follows a network of lives that intersect with life-altering consequence, painfully revealing that the best of intentions can still lead to disaster.
