Join us in the study room for a friendly and open discussion exploring this fascinating and richly detailed novel.
About the book
A writer embarks on an epic quest in search of his missing father’s stolen bicycle and soon finds himself caught up in the strangely intertwined stories of Lin Wang, the oldest elephant who ever lived, the soldiers who fought in the jungles of South-East Asia during the Second World War and the secret worlds of the butterfly handicraft makers and antique bicycle fanatics of Taiwan.
The Stolen Bicycle is both a majestic historical novel and a profound, startlingly intimate meditation on memory, family and home.
The Stolen Bicycle is available from the Gallery Shop. Buy your copy online.
