When a young woman is hired to write the life of an unknown artist from Geelong, she thinks it will be a quick commission paid for by a rich, grieving family obsessed with their own history. But Edna Cranmer's work spans decades, her images of red dirt, close interiors and distant jungles have the potential to change the way the nation views itself. As the biographer is pulled into Edna's life, she is confronted with the fact that how she tells Edna's past will affect her own future. Murray's novel explores how we value and celebrate art and artists' lives and reminds us that all memory is an act of curation.
