The breathtaking second book from the author of The Taste of Blue Light. THE CATCHER IN THE RYE meets LOST IN TRANSLATION in this feverish story about trying to outrun yourself. Praise for The Taste of Blue Light:
"Beautiful. Visceral. Gripping." Louise O'Neill
Arlo is restless. Having quit his latest acting job, he fills his days following people for character inspiration, hanging out with his flatmate, and wondering how quickly his fandom will forget him.
But when a new project ends in tragedy, Arlo is reminded of a past loss and risks his future by fleeing 5,000 miles to outrun his pain.
Lost in a neon city, Arlo is just another foreigner who can't communicate. He begins following people, leading him to befriend a mysterious environmentalist called Mizuki who reveals her obsession with finding an image that nobody has photographed before.
Together they seek out abandoned places- he wanting to be as lost as possible and she in search of the perfect, never-captured image.
