A rock chick. An artist with attitude. A girl with a past. A party animal. Four lives collide when one of the world's most famous paintings is stolen. It's a mystery that has the nation talking, but while Picasso's Weeping Woman might be absent from the walls of the National Gallery, in other parts of Melbourne the controversial painting's presence is being felt by Guy, Rafi, Luke and Penny for four very different reasons. Life, love, art and one giant party intersect in this offbeat comedy about good intentions, unexpected consequences and the irresistible force of true love.
Gabrielle Williams has three kids, one husband and a dog. She is the author of the critically acclaimed Beatle Meets Destiny (shortlisted for the Prime Minister's Literary Awards and Victorian Premier's Literary Awards in 2010) and The Reluctant Hallelujah (shortlisted for the Gold Inky Award 2012) and has been described by The Age reviewer Cameron Woodhead as 'one of the funniest young adult fiction authors around'. As part of her research for The Guy, the Girl, the Artist and His Ex, Gab interviewed a number of people - some of whom may or may not have been the actual Australian Cultural Terrorists.
