14 InDELIBLE InK FIoNA McGReGoR Love, death and real estate are the ingredients in Fiona McGregor’s portrait of contemporary Australian life. Marie King lives in Sydney’s affluent North Shore. At 59 she finds herself divorced, her children have moved out and she has had to sell the family home due to financial problems. Marie ends up drunk in a bar in Kings Cross and on a whim she gets a tattoo and strikes up a friendship with Rhys, the tattoo artist. Rhys introduces Marie to an alternative side of Sydney – a side of the city she didn’t know existed. Marie’s children are horrified at their mother’s transformation. Winner of the 2011 Age Book of the Year, Indelible Ink reflects on life and society of today.
