AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Imbi Neeme’s The Spill is an engaging novel set in Western Australia that meditates upon the connections between memory, trauma and the imagination. Sweeping across four decades, the novel focuses on the lives of two sisters, Nicole and Samantha: their differing relationships with their estranged parents, the secrets they keep and their conflicting memories in the wake of a childhood car accident. As they try to reconcile their views of the past, particularly their experiences of their mother’s alcoholism and death, the sisters grapple with their own failings, and their ways of mourning and memorialisation.'
