Books
It's 1972 in Canberra. Michael Dransfield is being treated for a drug addiction; Paula Keogh is delusional and grief-stricken. They meet in a psychiatric unit of the Canberra Hospital and instantly fall in love. Paula recovers a self that she thought was lost; Michael, a radical poet, is caught up in a rush of creative energy and writes poems that become The Second Month of Spring. Together, they plan for 'a wedding, marriage, kids - the whole trip'. But outside the hospital walls, madness, grief and drugs challenge their luminous dream. Can their love survive?
