Pianist and writer Anna Goldsworthy develops her first novel in the artists' studio at UKARIA Cultural Centre.

A series of stories, constructed loosely on the form of variations. The theme of this book is the rites of passage of a woman's life; the variants take the form of time and circumstance. These interconnected stories chart the seven ages of Ruby, an Australian woman, based on stories my grandmother told me. The final work is at once epic in scale - spanning nearly nine decades of a woman's life - but constructed as a mosaic. Central to it is a portrait of a marriage, and through this the stories examine the trauma of war.
