From the Stella shortlisted author of Poum and Alexandre, this is a heartwarming novel about longing, absence and the people we unexpectedly come to love.

After many years spent living in Seoul, a young man called Harold drifts back to Australia and rents a room above a fish and chip shop called The Sea and Us. Who he meets and what he experiences there propels him to question his own yearnings and failings, and to fight for meaning and a sense of place that can only be reached by facing what is lost.

By turns electric, tender, and hopeful, The Sea and Us is a gem of literary imagination. Catherine de Saint Phalle brilliantly captures disparate characters and their common human desire for community and connection. Long after the last page closes, ‘we can hear the bell tinkle. Someone wants some fish and chips.’

About the Author

Catherine de Saint Phalle is the author of five novels published by Actes Sud and Buchet Chastel in Paris. Her novel On Brunswick Ground and her memoir Poum and Alexandre, for which she was shortlisted for the prestigious Stella Prize in 2017, are published by Transit Lounge. Australia has been her home since 2003 - some people find it later than others. In their migratory flight, dwarf geese don't return to where they were born, but where they learnt how to fly.
