Perth, 1954. Thirteen-year-old Frank, a refugee from wartime Hungary, is learning to walk again after contracting polio.
At The Golden Age Children's Convalescent Home, he meets Elsa, and the two patients form a forbidden, passionate bond. The Golden Age becomes the little world that reflects the larger one, where everything occurs: love, desire, music, death and poetry.
Subtle, moving and remarkably lovely, The Golden Age evokes a yearning for deep connection, from one of Australia's finest and most loved novelists.
"London’s tale is an extraordinarily rich symbol of transition." (Australian Book Review)
"Our finest living writer of marriage and family life...her most accomplished and keenly felt work to date." (The Australian)
