A novel of epic proportions, the Antipodeans spans three generations of New Zealand and Italian families, from Venice to the South Island of New Zealand, from the assassination of a Gestapo commander in the last days of Italian resistance during World War II, to contemporary real estate shenanigans in Auckland, and from political assassination in the darkest days of the Red Brigades to the vaulting cosmology of particle physics.
