The Strays

On her first day at a new school, Lily meets Eva, one of the daughters of the infamous avant-garde painter Evan
Trentham. He and his wife are attempting to escape
the stifling conservatism of 1930s Australia by inviting
other like-minded artists to live and work with them at their family home. As Lily’s friendship with Eva grows,
she becomes infatuated with this makeshift family and longs to truly be a part of it.

Looking back on those years later in life, Lily realises
that this utopian circle involved the same themes as Evan Trentham’s art: Faustian bargains and terrible
recompense; spectacular fortunes and falls from grace.
Yet it was not Evan, nor the other artists he gathered
around him, but his own daughters, who paid the debt
that was owing.

Evan and Helena were exotic in their desire to talk to one another, to be in each other’s company
