"Astute, perceptive and always convincing." —The Australian

A powerful collection of stories from the Sydney Morning Herald Young Novelist of the Year, 2017. In "Coarsegold", a woman conducts an illicit affair while her recovering girlfriend works the overnight motel shift in the middle of nowhere. In "Dogs," Foggo runs an unruly gang of bored, cruel boys with a scent for fresh meat. In "Pressure Okay" a middle-aged man goes to the theatre, gets a massage, remembers his departed wife, and navigates the long game of grief with his adult daughter.
