Rosemary Fitzgerald is a playwright and fiction writer. She lives in Melbourne in a tiny apartment; where there is a cat, a writing spot by the window and no tv. Due to a recent obsession with minimalism, she is now less eight hundred books, four book cases, thirteen pairs of high heels and half the kitchen cupboards. She is also claiming ownership of a new verb: to konmarie. As in, "I konmaried all last winter and now have the makings for a capsule wardrobe". Five Days in Corfe is Rosemary's first novel.
Four cousins, a dog and a crumbling castle on a mysterious island in the bay of a village on the Dorset coast ... Did you ever wonder what happened to all those characters in the stories you read as a child? Four adults are together again after more than 30 years. They return to their childhood village to find the landmarks are all still there – but who they have become is the real mystery.
