A very funny, very clever 'tandem' story written and narrated by two of Australia's favourite authors.
Joel & Cat Set the Story Straight was a leading popular title at the 2007 Melbourne Writers' Festival.
Everyone knows that Joel and Cat hate each other. Then they end up partners in a writing assignment. By the second paragraph they're in the thick of an all-out tandem-story war.
Then Cat's dad and Joel's mum start dating, and they can finally agree on something - it's got to stop. But will sparks fly between Joel and Cat for all the right reasons as they go about setting a few things straight?
