Can the stories he tells himself pull him back from the edge?


After a bad relationship, August is trying to piece his life back together. It’s not perfect – his flat is small, he works in a call centre, he can’t finish the book he’s working on, and he’s hopelessly awkward when it comes to relationships. Then August meets Julie.


Julie is everything he isn’t – confident, composed, and purposeful, despite her troubled childhood. With her, August finally begins to feel he can be himself. More importantly, he starts to see a future. But Julie has a past – a past that August comes face to face with on a computer screen. Can August find it in himself to love Julie unconditionally, the way he’s always longed to be loved himself?


Les Zig’s writing is sharp, honest and incisive, so real in parts it will make you flinch. Zig has the unique ability to pull real, human truths from the ordinary and everyday.
