Introduction by Neil Armfield
Kate Grenville’s Orange-Prize winning novel The Idea of Perfection is the story of the small town of Karakarook, and of Douglas Cheeseman and Harley Savage—two people who seem the least likely in the world to fall in love. Unlike Felicity Porcelline, a woman dangerously haunted by the idea of perfection, they come to understand that what looks like weakness can be the best kind of strength.
‘An extraordinary comedy of manners.’
‘A rare treat to read.’
‘Each word, each sentence, each paragraph shines and gleams.’
