David Malouf's "An imaginary life" and Keri Hulme's "The bone people" both contain a central character in the form of a child who does not speak. The similarities between the two novels such as the relationship between the mute child and the artist/protagonist, is explored in this detailed review. (SLNSW Infocus item 1877).
