Tilly Dunnage left her hometown of Dungatar in rural Australia under a black cloud of accusation. Years later Tilly, now a couturier for the Paris fashion houses, returns home to make amends with her mentally unstable mother. Mid-century Dungatar is a small town, and small towns have long memories. At first she wins over the suspicious locals with her extraordinary dressmaking skills. But when the eccentric townsfolk turn on Tilly for a second time, she decides to teach them a lesson and exact long-overdue revenge...

Packed with memorable characters, acid humour and luscious clothes, The Dressmaker is an irresistible gothic tale of small-town revenge.

Anmeldelser

«Wickedly funny and glamorous ... an irresistible, gripping read»

Essentials

«There's almost a fairytale aspect to this story from 2000 of the prodigal returning, in this case the prodigal daughter ... Tilly is a fun and dark creation.»

Sunday Herald

«Blessed with an astringently unsentimental tone and a talent for creating memorably eccentric characters, Ham also possesses a confidently brisk and mischievous sense of plot»

Sydney Morning Herald

«Ham writes delightfully rich set pieces and descriptive passages ... her eye for the absurd, the comical and the poignant are highly tuned ... one to savour and enjoy»
