Maya de Jong, an eighteen-year-old country girl from the West, moves away from home to live in Melbourne. Here she begins an affair with her boss, the enigmatic Maynard Flynn, whose wife is dying of cancer. When Maya's parents, Toni and Jacob, arrive to stay with her, they are told by her housemate that Maya has gone away and no one knows where she is.

As Toni and Jacob wait and search for Maya in the city, everything in their lives is brought into question. To find her daughter, Toni will have to revisit a part of her past that she thought she had shut off forever, a time when she almost became a lost girl herself...

Review:

"'If London never writes another word, The Good Parents is more than enough... Achingly good.' Cath Kenneally, Australian 'Wise, true, funny, tragic... The quality of observation, close-focus and long-range, is so sharp you'll jab Post-it notes on every page. Every character, completely understood from the inside, is matchlessly right and irreplaceable.' Cath Kenneally, Australian 'Underwritten by a wealth of human understanding... the results are as powerful as they are unsettling.' Michael McGirr, Sydney Morning Herald 'London's dark and lovely work is both a novel of ideas and one of emotions... the mystery of enthrallment only deepens, irradiated by London's gorgeous prose.' Roxana Robinson, New York Times 'London pulls off the tricky feat of making the act of reflection suspenseful, turning the past into a living, unfinished thing, still bristling with what could be.' New Yorker"
