With a poet's eye for detail,The Life of Houses explores the hidden tensions in an old established Australian family that has lived for generations in a large house in a coastal town in south-eastern Australia.Tensions come to the surface when the granddaughter Kit is sent by her mother to spend a holiday with her grandparents, and the unmarried aunt who looks after them. Kit's presence brings the old quarrels to life as family memories take hold of the present, brought to a flashpoint by the anger and resentment of Kit and her mother, and the dementia and sudden illness of her grandparents.
