'John Charalambous captures the complexities and intricacies of Australian family as it exists today. He brings a distinctive new voice to Australian literature.' – Venero ArmannoNicky's a survivor. She's lived through a difficult Greek childhood, the failure of the utopian rural commune where everyone, including her artist husband, walked away, and years spent teaching in a small country town. Her greatest challenge now is her foster daughter Imogen, who is fifteen and cutting loose from her childhood. But Nicky wants to give her the opportunity for a different future. Furies is an incisive exploration of modern family relationships and of the complex ties that bind us.
