Publisher Comments:

A woman reflects on her life of sensual and sexual experience in an extraordinary, beautiful, and shocking new novel from one of Australia's premier novelists

That afternoon in the small bedroom the light was blue. The curtains were cream and blew softly in the wind. There was a cry, far off, almost out of earshot. There was a man in my bed and I did not know how he got there.

A woman, on the eve of her 50th birthday, reflects on 100 moments from a lifetime's sensual adventures. After the love, hatred, and despair are done with, the great and trivial acts of her bodily life reveal an imperfect, yet whole self. By turns humorous, sharp, haunting, and wise, this is an original and exhilarating novel. Lyrical and exquisite, it captures the sheer wonder of life, desire, and love.
