comprises seventeen overlapping stories of second thoughts and mid-life regret
set in the brooding small-town world of coastal Western Australia. Here
are turnings of all kinds - changes of heart, nasty surprises, slow
awakenings, sudden detours - where people struggle against the terrible
weight of the past and challenge the lives they've made for themselves.
elegiac stories examine the darkness and frailty of ordinary people and
celebrate the moments when the light shines through.
