At the age of thirty eight, Australian novelist Julia Leigh made her first visit to an IVF clinic with her then partner, full of optimism. Her memoir "Avalanche" documents the six years that follow-on from that visit - the break-down of her relationship, and her fraught and ultimately failed journey through six rounds of IVF alone. She talks to Jenni about her experience, the IVF industry, and why she, as a writer of fiction, felt compelled on this occasion to document her own life.

But after a perceived shame he brings to the family name Sutherland's Getty turns him away, leading to his grandson's eventual kidnap on the streets of Rome.
