Two men meet by chance in the taxi queue outside Paddington station one January night.

Richard is in his mid-forties, apparently happily married, with two young children. Abe is young and casually manipulative.

The men share a tax and on impulse Richard invite Abe into his home - action that sends ripples not only through his own life and that of his wife but also through the fragile existence of Abe's younger sister, Kirsty who is herself unsure of the best way to settle down.

Time Out Subtle and challenging...attempts something radical with the fictional form: it eludes novelistic norms in favour of something more like life Guardian Davey is a deft observer of the inequalities of nature that exist within families Daily Telegraph
