Marie King is a 59-year-old divorcée from Sydney's affluent north shore. Having devoted her rather conventional life to looking after her husband and three children - who have now all departed the family home - she is experiencing something of an identity crisis, especially as she must now sell the family home and thus lose her beloved garden. On a folly she gets a tattoo. Marie forges a friendship with her tattoo artist, Rhys, who introduces her to an alternative side of Sydney from that to which Marie is accustomed. Through their burgeoning connection, Marie's two worlds collide causing great friction within Marie's family and with her circle of rich friends. With echoes of Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections and Christos Tsiolkas's The Slap, Indelible Ink is a multi-layered examination of how we live now, in which one family becomes a microcosm for the changes operating in society at large. About the Author: Fiona McGregor is the author of three works of fiction: Au Pair, shortlisted for The Australian/Vogel Award; Suck My Toes, winner of the Steele Rudd Award; and chemical palace, shortlisted for the NSW Premier's Award for fiction. She was voted one of the inaugural Best Young Novelists by the Sydney Morning Herald in 1997. Her most recent book is a travel memoir, Strange Museums. Fiona is also known as a performance artist. She has performed live across Australia and Europe, and her video works have been seen internationally.
