Author(s): Emily Perkins
Tells a story about Daniel, who escapes the grind of his London life to find himself alone, penniless and paranoid on the other side of the world. And it is also about Kate, who lives in Auckland, working as an usherette. This book offers a witty examination of a generation cut adrift: what do people do when they don't know what they want to do?
