John Lofty Oakes is an extraordinary child. Impaired by a tiny size, this Tom Thumb has the gift of crying tears of gold. As he became an object of desire for the fortune flowing from his eyes, he quickly understands that the talent bestowed upon him is a curse. In the company of his friend, Bartholomé, he will embark on an extraordinary journey taking him from Guildford, in Western Australia where he was born, to the Fiji Islands, from Fiji to Panaji, on the west coast of India, before returning to his native land after a sojourn on strange planets. Half-way between a philosophical tale and an epic, the novel recalls the heroic quest of a man subject to doubts and questions. John Lofty Oakes is in line with those whimsical, naive and generous characters who are more than the mere fruit of the imagination, as we would like to believe.
