Description

The Life of Houses explores, with a poet’s eye for detail, the hidden tensions in one of Australia’s establishment families. These tensions come to the surface during a week in summer when Kit’s recently-divorced mother sends her away to stay with her estranged grandparents, and her unmarried aunt who cares for them, in their old and decaying house by the sea.
