"Fivestar" by Mardi McConnochie. [review - radio script]
Dooley, Gillian Mary
Mardi McConnochie is clearly keen not to be typecast as a novelist. Her first, "Coldwater", was a brooding gothic tale about a set of sisters with the same Christian names as the Brontes, living on a prison island off the east coast of Australia in the mid nineteenth century with their prison-governor father. Her second, "The Snow Queen", was about ageing ballet dancers in Adelaide in the 1970s, and now we have "Fivestar", a swipe at the pop music industry.
