Sex. Power. Consent.

A provocative contemporary Australian campus novel, Love & Virtue is laden with conversation starters. From the intricacies of sexual consent to the power dynamics of relationships, the fraught possibilities of being seen to be ‘politically progressive’ and the competitive nature of university friendships. As each character’s storyline plays out, readers everywhere will have much to debate and consider.

Michaela and Eve are two bright, bold women who befriend each other their first year at a residential college at university, where they live in adjacent rooms. They could not be more different; one assured and popular – the other uncertain and eager-to-please. But something happens one night in O-week – a drunken encounter, a foggy memory that will force them to confront the realities of consent and wrestle with the dynamics of power.

Initially bonded by their wit and sharp eye for the colleges’ mix of material wealth and moral poverty, Michaela and Eve soon discover how fragile friendship is, and how capable of betrayal they both are.

Product Features:

  • The ideal novel for readers who loved The Secret History by Donna Tartt, Monkey Grip by Helen Garner, Kokomo by Victoria Hannan or even A Lonely Girl is a Dangerous Thing by Jessie Tu.
  • Love & Virtue was the subject of a fiercely contested Australian 8-publisher auction – and the international buzz is starting to build. Diana is a rising star on the literary scene. So far Love & Virtue has been sold to the UK (Orion, publishing May 2022) and to Spain - with deals continuing to come through in other territories.
  • There is also already confirmed film/tv interest.
