Mad Meg


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.
