- THE DOROTHY HEWETT AWARD
The Concerto Inn
The Concerto Inn threads the stories of two sisters, two betrayals and the two acts of violence—years apart—that lead Isabelle and Madeleine to Ravello, Italy, the mythical place of their childhood.
From Hong Kong to the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, from the wild peat country of southern Victoria to Paris, the sisters’ past and present become a haunting narrative of longing and unfulfilled desire.
Praise for The Concerto Inn:
An exquisite detailing of love, longing, loss and renewal reminiscent of the writing of Marguerite Duras.LIZ FERRIER, CULTURAL STUDIES AND MEDIA ACADEMIC
