The acclaimed story of Faith, a rock singer who lives in Kings Cross and Angel, a dreamy homeless girl.
Angel is surrounded by dangers; her fragile hold on life weakened by the violence of a client and her spiralling drug habit.
Faith is a born outsider who has an intense commitment to saving Angel due to unresolved events in her own wild life - an eccentric upbringing by a communist aunt, her roller-coaster career as a famous singer, passionate love affairs and the fate of her beloved daughter.
FAITH SINGER both chronicles the powerful friendship between them and celebrates the life of an extraordinary woman and the city she lives in.
FAITH SINGER is a radiant and unsparing portrayal of the underbelly of Sydney life by one of Australia's finest novelists. Addiction, obsession, betrayal, and redemption coalesce in storytelling so vivid and prose so elegant it will leave you slightly breathless. - Mandy Sayer
