Larissa Behrendt

Simone Harlowe is young and clever, an Aboriginal lawyer straddling two lives and two cultures while studying at Harvard. Her family life back in Sydney is defined by the complex relationship she has with her father Tony, a prominent Aboriginal rights activist. As Simone juggles the challenges of a modern woman’s life - career, family, friends and relationships - her father is confronting his own uncomfortable truths as his secret double life implodes. Can Simone accept her father for the man he is and forgive him for the man he’s not? ‘A stunning first novel. Behrendt creates vivid characters whose convincing inner lives bring this story of loss and survival powerfully to life.’ Kate Grenville, author of The Secret River, on Larissa Behrendt’s Home
