Summary
Evan Trentham is the wild child of the Melbourne art world of the 1930s. He and his captivating wife, Helena, attempt to carve out their own small niche, to escape the stifling conservatism they see around them, by gathering together other like-minded artists. They create a utopian circle within their family home, offering these young artists a place to live and work. At the periphery of this circle is Lily Struthers, infatuated by the world she bears witness to, and longs to be part of this enthralling makeshift family. As Lily observes years later, looking back on events that she still carries painfully within her, the story of this groundbreaking circle involved the same themes as Evan Trentham's art: Faustian bargains and terrible recompense; spectacular fortunes and falls from grace
Summary
In 1930s Melbourne, Lily befriends Eva and her two sisters, and becomes infatuated with the bohemian lifestyle of their artist father and the community of like-minded artists living and working in their house.
