The Important Things is the tale of Christopher, who lives with his mother. Christopher's mother does everything, as his father has faded from their lives. When they give away a box of his father's old things, a series of events takes place that reveal the different ways in which Christopher and his mother deal with the absent father. Peter Carnavas always been fascinated by the stories behind things, the reasons particular things are important to us.

An old typewriter might not work anymore but it may have once belonged to a favourite author, or was passed down through generations in the family. The importance of things, and why they are important, is what led me to write this story. It's about remembering. It's about parents. It's about absence. It's about the joy of understanding between a mother and a son. And, most importantly, it's about slippers.
