Life Drawing

Author(s): Robin Black

Australian Fiction

**A fierce, honest, and moving portrait of a marriage — the betrayals and intimacies, the needs and regrets, the secrets that sustain love and the ones that threaten to destroy it.** Augusta and Owen have moved to the country, and live a quiet and rather solitary life: Gus, as a painter; Owen, as a writer. But beneath the surface of this tranquil existence lies the heavy truth of Gus's past betrayal, an affair that haunts Owen, Gus, and their marriage. Feeling lonely and isolated, Gus befriends Alison, a beautiful British divorcée who moves in next door. As the lives of the three neighbours become more and more tightly intertwined, the emotions among them grow so intense that even the slightest misstep has the potential to do irrevocable harm to them all. With lyrical precision and taut, suspenseful storytelling, Black steadily draws us deeper into a world filled with joys and darkness, love and sorrows — a world that becomes as real as our own. *Life Drawing* is a novel as beautiful and unsparing as the human heart
