    One Hundred Days
    One Hundred Days
    From one of Australia's most celebrated authors comes a mother-daughter drama exploring the faultlines between love and control.<br/>One hundred days. It's no time at all, she tells me. But she's not the one waiting.<br/><br/>In a heady whirlwind of independence, lust and defiance, sixteen-year-old Karuna falls pregnant. Not on purpose, but not entirely by accident, either. Incensed, Karuna's mother, already over-protective, confines her to their fourteenth-storey housing-commission flat, to keep her safe from the outside world - and make sure she can't get into any more trouble.<br/><br/>Stuck inside for endless hours, Karuna battles her mother and herself for a sense of power in her own life, as a new life forms and grows within her. As the due date draws ever closer, the question of who will get to raise the baby - who it will call Mum - festers between them.<br/><br/>One Hundred Days is a fractured fairytale exploring the faultlines between love and control. At times tense and claustrophobic, it is nevertheless brimming with humour, warmth and character. It is a magnificent new work from one of Australia's most celebrated writers.<br/><br/>'The tale of mothers and daughters the world over, this is truly fiction at its fiercest. It is a masterpiece, a triumph.' -Maxine Beneba Clarke<br/><br/>'Pung's command as a writer is astonishing, elating. I adore this book.' -Christos Tsiolkas
