              Brave, explosive, and thought-provoking, this is a powerful memoir. 'It's material, make a story out of it,' was the mantra Charlotte Grimshaw grew up with in her literary family. But when her life suddenly turned upside-down, she needed to re-examine the reality of that material.... The more she delved into her memories, the more the real characters in her life seemed to object. So what was the truth of 'a whole life lived in fiction'? This is a vivid account of a New Zealand upbringing, where rebellion was encouraged, where trouble and tragedy lay ahead. It looks beyond the public face to the 'messy reality of family life - and much more'.

              By Grimshaw, Charlotte

              During the long summer holiday, the Lampton and Hallwright families gather in a large beach house belonging to Prime Minister David Hallwright and his wife Roza. The weather is perfect and outwardly all is well, but the harmony is disturbed when Simon Lampton's brother arrives fo...r a visit. Ford casts a cold eye over the company, barely disguising his contempt for David Hallwright. To add to Simon's discomfort a young man called Arthur Weeks makes contact, asking about his secret past affair, and Roza begins to tell her small son Johnnie a continuous story about a group of fantasy creatures u a story that contains uncomfortable parallels with their current lives. When Simon agrees to meet secretly with Arthur Weeks, the result is a violent disaster that will threaten the security of them all. Charlotte Grimshaw's exhilaratingly gripping and clever narrative traces the lives of its beautiful people u moral imbecileso in Ford's words u as they jostle for position in their leader's court. This humane and capacious novel, generous and faithful to its characters in ways that they are not to each other, articulates the ancient idea that to be moral is an act of consciousness, an effort of will.

              Tracing the lines that run through our society, from the private, interior life of one lonely young woman to the top tier of power in the country, this novel demonstrates how little separates us and how close we really are: rich and poor, famous and hidden, virtuous and criminal.... Eloise Hay lives on the peninsula. Every weekday she travels into the city from her comfortable house to work at Q TV Studio, assisting with the production of the weekly news programme, Roysmith. She loves this life, but one day she receives a phone call that will change it for ever. Thrown into the turmoil of a sudden marriage break-up, Eloise becomes increasingly isolated. An idea begins to take shape that a layer of the world has been hidden from her. As she struggles to cope with her loneliness and confusion, she revisits a traumatic episode from her past, and in doing so encounters an odd-eyed policewoman, a charismatic obstetrician, a German psychotherapist, and an Internet pirate wanted by the United States government. Each of these characters will reveal something about the life of Eloise Hay, answering questions that she hasn't, until now, had the courage to ask.
