Abstract:

"The present reckons with the past in Attraction, Ruby Porter's atmospheric debut novel. Three women are on a road trip, navigating the motorways of the North Island, their relationships with one another and New Zealand's colonial history. Our narrator doesn't know where she stands with Ilana, her not-quite girlfriend. She has a complex history with her best friend, Ashi. She's haunted by the memory of her emotionally abusive ex-boyfriend. And her period's now weeks late. Attraction is a meditative novel of connection, inheritance and the stories we tell ourselves. In lyrical fragments, Porter explores what it means to be and to belong, to create and to destroy."--Publisher description.
