'Mood Indigo' explores the underbelly of Australian urban life through the point of view of Rose, aged four as the novel opens, almost a teenager when it ends. Her father is a failing, eccentric pianist and her mother is lost between lovers and cocktails. The family's movements grind on like an old blues song, but it's Rose's love for her family that sings clear above the din.
This edition also includes Mandy Sayer's second novel, 'Blind Luck,' the sequel to 'Mood Indigo'. A teenager now, Rose is street-smart and nobody's fool. As Rose steers a course through the disasters that beset her mother's life, she develops an almost Dickensian ability to navigate her way beyond the hard facts of poverty.
In these two novels, acclaimed writer Mandy Sayer creates an unforgettable individual, one who endures and shines above the powerlessness of childhood.
