By "Branwell Brontë" (Dr Lambert-Hills)
‘You have the power to make me the happiest man in the world. You can also make me the saddest person who ever lived. In that sense, I’ve set you up amongst the Gods.’ January 28th 2012, his 44th birthday. John Eaglewood goes mysteriously missing. Left behind are his wife, Jessica and the on-off affair shared with one Julia Langley, a woman almost half his age. Crowned in events leading to Eaglewood’s sudden disappearance and set in both the 19th and 21st centuries, via an intricate mesh of journal entries, communications and other fragments, gradually unfolds a time bending story of obsession and betrayal. But what falls between the memoirs of a troubled Branwell Brontë and latterly, the equally turbulent, murky life of a man vanished without trace for five years? Over one and a half centuries awaiting completion, ‘Push Me Away’ is the only novel by Branwell, much maligned brother of the Brontë sisters, Charlotte, Emily & Anne. Proof, if needed, that the greatest magician in the universe is time.
