'A classic, but with contemporary urgency thumping through it.' Claire-Louise Bennett, author of Pond. A woman invites a famed artist to the remote coastal landscape where she lives. Drawn to his paintings, she believes his vision may penetrate the mystery at the centre of her life. But as a long, dry summer sets in, his provocative presence soon twists the patterns of her secluded household.

A psychodrama that is both timeless and up-to-the minute.
