9781921215964: Indelible Ink: A Novel

A novel about connections in a changing world of friends, lovers, family, illness, and death, this unique narrative tells the story of Marie King 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, Marie is experiencing an identity crisis. Forced to sell the family home now that her children have moved out, Marie expresses herself by getting a tattoo and, consequently, forges a friendship with tattoo artist Rhys. As Rhys introduces Marie to an alternative side of Sydney, friction erupts between Marie’s social spheres the affluent middle class and the tattoo subculture. A multi-layered examination of how we live now, this account positions one family as a microcosm for the modifications operating in society at large.
