A masterful debut short story collection from the award-winning, critically-acclaimed poetAdam O'RiordanIn these eight stories, an English writer focuses his gaze on America's West Coast,moving from fractured lives in remote, sun-scorched towns to the charged hum ofVenice Beach.

A man visits his long-distance lover in Los Angeles and forges an unexpected bond witha fellow traveller on the way; a teenager interviews a businessman for his schoolnewspaper and their paths continue to cross, throughout life; the foreman of a desertbuilding project embarks on a journey down the Pacific Coast Highway and intoCalifornia's underworld when his employer's daughter goes missing; a lonely widowerreflects on the past and confronts a disturbing and long suppressed memory; adivorced father tries to reconnect with his son on a hunting trip; an artist finds peace inexile after the disintegration of an affair; and itinerant Brits discuss love and acting indowntown LA.

Written with an outsider's keen eye, this collection of stories paints an intimate portrait ofdiverse lives, in a work of remarkable beauty and poignancy
