Written in the first person by a reality TV producer, Kif Kehlmann, First Person is Kif’s recollection of how as a younger, penniless writer, unable to finish his first novel, he agrees to ghost write the memoir of a notorious con man, Ziggy Heidl, who has defrauded the banks of $700 million. He has six weeks to write the book, for which he'll receive $10,000. But as the work gets under way, Kehlmann begins to fear that he is being corrupted by the con man. At the novel’s heart is a question: what is the truth?

Arky Levin is a film composer in New York separated from his wife, who has asked him to keep one devastating promise. One day he finds his way to The Atrium at MOMA and sees Marina Abramovic in The Artist is Present. The performance continues for seventy-five days and, as it unfolds, so does Arky. As he watches and meets other people drawn to the exhibit, he slowly starts to understand what might be missing in his life and what he must do.

This epic and sweeping 200-year saga of an ancient island and its violent transformation from Eden-like paradise to the tourist-destination Tasmania of today, is told through the lives of four families. All of them are in an alien environment full of ghosts and strange presences.

This is raw history as well as the heart-warming story of ordinary people, loving, hating and battling along in a difficult setting, indelibly marked by their past, yet striving to rise above it and seek redemption.
