Greer Gordon lives in Italy with Mischa Svoboda, a driven Czech-born painter with a booming international reputation. She and Mischa met when his debut show at the small Melbourne art gallery where Greer then worked created a sensation. Their explosive love affair caused Greer to abandon her husband, job and autocratic boss Verity, sever all contact with home and embark on a nomadic life with Mischa. Twenty-five years later, Tony, a young American art critic, has been researching a biography of Mischa and arrives in their small hilltop community. Greer is consumed by anxiety, fearing the biographer may have unearthed something that happened as a consequence of her meeting Mischa, a buried secret she had intended to write out of her life story. Greer and Tony play out a gripping cat-and-mouse game in which she tries to glean who he has spoken to and what, if anything, he knows, while he lets drop, with calculated casualness, graded snippets of information designed to keep her guessing. As her hand is forced, Greer embarks on a tense journey of her own. Through Tony's artful interrogations and her own diary, she is compelled to put her youthful self on trial. In the process she makes a life-changing discovery.
