In Residence at Bundanon

For my residency project I will be working on my second novel – a work of literary fiction about a short relationship between a young man and an older woman. Thematically the novel will explore the complexities related to mother-son relationships as well as various aspects of ultra-Orthodox Judaism with emphasis on the interactions between the Australian Family Law system, Jewish law and ultra-Orthodox communities. There will also be a prominent focus on the psychological concept of ‘limerence’ as developed by Dorothy Tennov.
