About this item
Based on the infamous novelist Eve Langley, Ava Langdon is an eccentric outcast solely preoccupied with her passion for words. Little does Ava know, she does not have long to live. Each day she wakes obsessed with finding the perfect sentence, the perfect description. She dons men’s clothing and inspires confusion with her penchant for slipping snippets of French into conversation. She lives on the fringes of society, enjoying a life not bound by convention, devoted to her art and scornful of the commercial best-sellers that eclipse her own books. From submitting a manuscript, to getting hit by a ute, to meeting with her estranged son, Ava’s last days encapsulate the freedom of eccentricity and the sadness of isolation. A true portrait of an artist,The Last Days of Ava Langdon is a wild and witty insight into the mind of an artist consumed by her art as she sashays unaware towards her own demise.
