Short sparse and strange Gerbrand Bakker s The Detour is the enigmatic tale of a Dutch woman Emilie who runs away from her husband and takes up residence in an isolated cottage in the Welsh countryside For some time she lives a solitary existence there as the reasons for her decision are slowly made clear to the reader Her only companions are ten geese and even they are disappearing being picked off by a predator one by one Then her privacy is disturbed by the necessity of a visit to the local doctor s by a farmer who makes unwanted advances towards her by a boy who takes a detour across her land with his dog It is the last encounter that proves the most significant as Emilie develops a tentative and unsettling relationship with Bradwen who is almost always referred to simply as the boy This is the type of book in which everything is loaded with symbolism and meaning There is little action the language is stripped down and the behaviour of the characters is often surreal what to make of the chain smoking doctor and his gossiping in the hair salon or the peculiar semi sexual tension between Emilie s husband and the policeman Then there s the fact that Bradwen slots so easily into Emilie s life and household and that both of them accept this unusual arrangement Although the book has some traces of that occasional awkwardness which seems to be a hallmark of translation the simple elegant prose is a perfect fit for a character like Emilie Despite the fact that she is the main focus of the story she remains a mystery to the reader right to the end and her final actions come as something of a shock The Detour is cold stark and arguably uneventful but for me those were the things that made it memorable There s a strong sense of unease running through the story and I thought the surprise of the ending was wonderfully done I was also weirdly glad that view spoilerEmilie s husband didn t reach her in time hide spoiler
