AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Edwina Nearly has problems which range from the banal to the absurd. Her neighbours are fanatical control freaks who leave threatening letters on her doorstep. Her mother, who writes software programs by day and works as a belly dancer by night, is dating a series of unsuitable men and making herself miserable. Her brother is becoming robotic. And now her diary has developed a will of its own and is writing back to her, offering unwanted advice.

'To give herself a break, she decides to visit the Art Gallery one afternoon. There, she falls, Alice-like, into a painting, 'The Garden Of Earthly Delights', a place in which the laws of physics do not apply.

'Edwina finds that she is able to come and go between the Garden and her home in inner-city Sydney at will. All deeply weird, but also seductive, especially when she meets the beautiful and complex Janus - who looks a lot like Paul, a boy Edwina would very much like to know better. Against the advice of her prophetic diary, Edwina rushes headlong into love.

'But who is this enigmatic Janus? How can it be that he bears such an uncanny resemblance to Paul? When Janus wants to enter Edwina's world and finds his way out of the painting, he threatens to destroy Edwina and those she loves'.
