The Lighthouse is a tense, masterfully crafted short novel. Recently separated from his wife, Futh sets off on a circular walking holiday in Germany. His starting, and end, point is a small hotel called Hellhaus (lighthouse), operated by Ester and her husband Bernard. In alternating chapters we follow Futh on his journey, both physical and emotional, and are given a glimpse of Ester's inner turmoil as she tries to deal with her unhappy, and perhaps never happy, marriage. Through flashbacks and memories we are shown the events which have lead Ester and Futh to these points in their lives. Rich in symbolism and packed with tension, The Lighthouse is a novel about how we get to where we are, and why it's not always a happy destination.
