Lucy is a university student possessed by radical passivity, letting coin tosses decide random sexual encounters and enduring her menial jobs with patience.

As this unnerving experience bleeds into her daily life, Lucy develops the courage to break the spell and discover what happens to her while she sleeps

Disquiet by Julia Leigh( Recording )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accompanied by her two children, a woman tries to gain entry to a walled garden. The three have been on a long journey, making an escape of sorts. The children have never been here before. The woman has come home. But home is not as it was. Even when the woman gains entry, what she finds is not what she left. Her mother, her brother, her family - and herself - have experienced tragedies they do not discuss, and behave in ways that others pretend to ignore. Like a Bergman film or a Pinter play, Julia Leigh has created a work of unforgettable atmosphere and psychological drama - a strange and absolutely compelling vision of a family full of secrets, a short novel that ranks with the finest international literature

Avalanche : a love story by Julia Leigh( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the age of 38, acclaimed novelist Julia Leigh made her first visit to the in vitro fertilization (IVF) clinic, full of hope. So started a long and costly journey of nightly injections, blood tests, surgeries, and rituals. Writing in the immediate aftermath of her decision to stop treatment, Leigh lays bare the truths of her experience: the highs of hope and the depths of disappointment, the grip of yearning and desire, the toll on her relationships, and the unexpected graces and moments of black humor. Along the way she navigates the science of IVF, copes with the impact of treatment, and reconciles the seductive promises of the worldwide multi-billion-dollar IVF industry with the reality. Avalanche is the book that has finally been written on IVF treatment: a courageous, compelling, and ultimately wise account of a profoundly important and widespread experience. At the heart of this work is an exploration of who and how we love. It is a story we can all relate to--about the dreams we have, defeated or otherwise, for ourselves, our loves, and our relationships. Avalanche bears witness to Leigh's raw desire, suffering, strength, and, in the end, transformation, and her shift to a different kind of love.--Adapted from dust jacket

Dans les montagnes tasmaniennes, le chasseur de primes, qui se fait désormais appeler Martin David, loge chez Lucy Armstrong, mère de deux jeunes enfants dont le mari a disparu en poursuivant lui aussi le rare félin. Martin, qui partage son temps entre la forêt où il tente de prendre l'animal au piège et la maison de Lucy, s'attache graduellement à elle et à ses petits. Or, il se rend bientôt compte que quelqu'un suit sa trace et que la disparition du mari de Lucy n'est peut-être pas imputable à un simple accident. [(c) Médiafilm].
