Almost a mirror / Kirsten Krauth.

Like fireflies to the light, Mona, Benny and Jimmy are drawn into the elegantly wasted orbit of the Crystal Ballroom and the post-punk scene of 80s Melbourne, a world that includes Nick Cave and Dodge, a photographer pushing his art to the edge. Kirsten Krauth evokes the power of music to infuse our lives, while diving deep into loss, beauty, innocence and agency. Above all, the novel is about the shapes that love can take and the many ways we express tenderness throughout a lifetime. As it moves between the Blue Mountains and Melbourne, Sydney and Castlemaine, "Almost a Mirror" reflects on the healing power of creativity and the everyday sacredness of family and friendship in the face of unexpected tragedy.
