In this gripping and beautifully written book, Clare Dudman imaginatively recreates the life of the man whose theories of continental drift - derided in his lifetime - have revolutionised our perception of the world. Reaching record-breaking heights in hot air balloons, almost fatally injured in the First World War, and driven by a passion for ice and for a better understanding of the natural history of the world, Alfred Wegener was an extraordinary man.

Dudmans descriptions of glaciers caving and young men lost in the widerness are thrilling, but Wegeners Jigsaw is also a story of courage: of Wegeners determination to prove his critics wrong, and of his wifes heartbreaking decision to let him go, to follow his dangerous - and ultimately deadly - dream. Wegeners remarkable story is largely unknown, and Dudman - whose magnificent writing has already won her two awards - has created a novel that should become a classic.
