Love can rule your life. Change your personality. Your everyday existence can be shaped by the opinion of one person. It seems crazy – so why do we do it? Why do we let the thoughts of someone else govern our decisions and actions?
He had his heart broken by his one true love, and cannot see a way forward in life. Having alienated himself from his family and friends, he works nights and shuns normal society. But not even disrupted sleep and depression can explain the strange behaviours that will suddenly take over him. It all escalates on an unassuming night, when he returns home to find a woman asleep in his driveway. Waiting.
One probes the extremes we go to for love; the extent of emotional influence; the scars we leave on each other. The novel asks, who do you become when you’re driven to obsession?
Fast-paced, immediate and perceptive, One is the highly original second novel from a young Australian writer establishing himself as a major talent.
