Everything in Klara's life is perfect, from her boutique cosmetic clinic to her svelte physique, her modern home in Melbourne's coveted inner east to Dante, her adoring husband with movie-star good looks. If all goes to plan, she and Dante will soon have a perfect baby too. Then one phone call shatters it all: Dante's in a coma, after being discovered unconscious in a gay sauna. Suddenly Klara's perfect life begins to spiral and her husband's secrets threaten to disrupt everything she thought she knew about love, marriage and family. From Australia's most exciting new author, Modern Marriage reveals what lies beneath the veneer of perfection.
