Abstract:

Twenty-two stories that venture inside the minds and landscapes that are at once recognisable and utterly strange: a boy paralysed by fear atop a high diving board, a poet lounging contented beside his pool, a young couple experienceing sexual uncertainties, a depressed woman soliciting comfort from her threadbare support network. Linking the stories is a series of imagined interviews with men on the subject of their relations with women.
