About the Book

"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.

About the Book

These diverse stories take the reader from the USA to Japan, through small dusty towns, glittering cities and slow suburbs. Down’s characters are mourners, survivors and perpetrators.
