But how to make that possible?Jean-Marie is an internationally regarded professor of philosophy whose adoring female students are willing sexual partners fulfilling the tenets of his libertarianism. But perhaps philosophy can't bear the weight of human emotion.When G rard buys a beautiful old house in the suburbs, the disturbing contents of the attic bind the stories in an intriguing and darkly disturbing knot. WCValley of Grace is a lyrical work full of hope and children, written by one of Australia's most loved novelists at the height of her literary powers. Savour this book.'. Cracking with life and mortality . Halligan's magical word pictures have that serene intensity that is now her trademark.' Robert Dessaix
