Overview

A Perfect Square by Isobel Blackthorn

When pianist Ginny Smith moves back to her mother's house in Sassafras after her breakup with the degenerate Garth, synaesthetic and eccentric artist Harriet Brassington-Smythe contrives a creative collaboration to lift her daughter's spirits: an exhibition of paintings and songs.

Mother and daughter struggle to agree on the elements of the collaborative effort, and as Ginny tries to prise the truth of her father’s disappearance from a tight-lipped Harriet, both are launched into their own inner worlds of dreams, speculations and remembering.

Meanwhile, another mother and artist, Judith, alone in a house on the moors, reflects on her own troubled past and that of her wayward daughter, Madeleine.

Set amid the fern glades and towering forests of the Dandenong ranges east of Melbourne, and on England's Devon moors, A Perfect Square is a work of remarkable depth and insight.
