CHEMICAL PALACE

Chemical Palace(2002) – novel

Allen & Unwin

Shortlisted NSW Premiers Award

“Fiona McGregor’s chemical palace is a work of remarkable assurance and depth. … Much of her work is about collapsing boundaries – of sexuality and identity, of art and passion, of love and lust, sound and music. chemical palace is a tightly organised and economical book that is also gorgeously lush and decadent; it is both permissive and cautionary, assured and questioning and one of the best Australian novels I’ve read in years.” – Crusader Hillis, The Age
