"Who and where is the missing King? And what of his people - how will they reclaim their past in a world that is layered and wrapped in the history of others?
Moetai Brotherson's sweeping and witty novel addresses these weighty matters through the voices of two very different heroes - Vaki, a gifted chess-playing Marquesan mute and Philippe, the French psychologist who commandeers his story.
Bounding across continents and the wide Pacific ocean, The Missing King also takes us on the magnificent spiritual and intellectual journeys of these two unusual characters.
The Missing King was orginally published in French as Le Roi absent in 2007.
