The Life and Loves of Lena Gaunt


Written by Tracy Farr

This is the story of Dame Lena Gaunt: musician, octogenarian, junkie.

Lena is Music’s Most Modern Musician; the first theremin player of the twentieth century. From the obscurity of a Perth boarding school to a glittering career on the world stage, Lena Gaunt’s life will be made and torn apart by those she gives her heart to.


"Lena is a captivating narrator who provides a window into a world where some of life’s deepest questions can only be answered through art...a reflective, quiet, but beautifully written tale perfect for those interested in the intersection of music, literature, and film." - Foreword Magazine
