God-Shaped Hole (2002)

Hit by impulse, independent jewellery maker Beatrice responds to a personal ad in a weekly newspaper "seeking a friend for the end of the world". In doing so, she meets Jacob Grace, a charismatic, passionate writer whose vision of life drifts significantly away from her cynical and withdrawn personality. The story begins to pick up speed as the pair moves beyond their initial phase of brief infatuation, and deals with more delicate and painful drawings of their family history, which soon threaten their current state of happiness. The predictions of a fortune teller (found in the prelude) that she'll lose her soul mate to tragedy also places a shadow over their happy ending. A delicate love story and tragedy at the same time, this is an amazing piece of work exploring the fragility and power of humanity, with no more exaggeration than it needs. (XT)
