Abstract:

This is a book about families, about secrets. Henri and Isobel are artists. What they do with art, Stella and Allegra do with passion. Isobel tries to unravel the secrets of her family: her kind but crazy mother, Stella; her reprobate but dearly loved father, Henri; and her campaigning, dynamic sister Allegra. Set in Melbourne and Milan, Mad Meg takes the reader through the history of an Australian–Italian family; through a tapestry of interconnecting lives tangled against the backdrop of two very different countries.'Mad Meg has armed herself with dishes, pans and carving knives and leads her march against the Devil. Across the field of Hell she goes ... roars and exclamations mounting in her throat. What will she slay? Everything exists demonically and absurdly around her. The moment of her action tumbles onward and outward forever.'
