Lawrence Loman is a bright, caring, curious boy with a gift for painting. He lives at home with his mother and younger brother, and the future is laid out before him, full of promise. But when he is ten, an experience of betrayal takes it all away, and Lawrence is left to deal with the devastating aftermath.

As he grows into a man, how will he make sense of what he has suffered? He cannot rewrite history, but must he be condemned to repeat it?

Lawrence finds meaning in the best way he knows. By surrendering himself to art and nature, he creates beauty - beauty made all the more astonishing and soulful for the deprivation that gives rise to it.

Infinite Splendours is an extraordinary novel, incandescent with love and compassion, rich in colour and character.

Sofie Laguna is an Australian novelist, who won the 2015 Miles Franklin award for her book Eye of the Sheep. Her most recent novel, The Choke, was released in 2017 and was nominated for the 2018 Stella prize.

This event is a collaboration between Randwick City Library, Waverley Library and Woollahra Libraries.
