A body buried in a suburban backyard.
A suicide pact worthy of Chekhov.
A love affair born in a bookshop.
The last days of Bennelong.
And a very strange gift for a most unusual Prime Minister...
Tantalising, poignant, wry, and just a little fantastical, this subversive collection of short fiction - and one singular novella - from bestselling author Debra Adelaide reminds us what twists of fate may be lurking just beneath the surface of the everyday.
