The present reckons with the past in Attraction. Porter’s unnamed narrator is on a road trip across New Zealand with her friends Ashi and Ilana, haunted by the specter of her emotionally abusive ex-boyfriend, her complicated family background and New Zealand’s colonial history. Jealousies intensify as the young women work out who they are and who they might become.
