Axiomatic is Tumarkin's fourth book of nonfiction, and her most pioneering. Her three previous books have all been shortlisted for major prizes in Australia, but this is the book best positioned to break her out in the US market.
Axiomatic is a boundary-shifting fusion of thinking, storytelling, reportage and meditation. More than nine years of reporting and interviews in the making, it actively seeks to reset the nonfiction form
