The book explores the peculiar places we look for validation, for purpose, for a life we might recognize as wholly our own. Off-kilter heroes and heroines find themselves camping in elm trees set to be felled; seeking refuge in a spare bedroom carved out of an opal mine; singing to a stranger on the other side of a bathroom wall.

As her characters struggle with relationships, Sexsmith deftly cuts through raw and intimate moments to show how strangely impervious to their desperate circumstances people can be.
