Bruce’s life is finally on track. He’s got a place to live and a job he likes, working on a high-rise building site in the middle of Melbourne. Then he meets Troy. And as his carefully constructed life starts to fall apart, Bruce finds himself falling forward, once again lost and out of control.

This book had me gripped from the start. It felt like the quintessential Aussie novel. Bruce is such a loveable character. Things aren’t always easy for him – he loses his home and his job, but things work out for him in the end. The ending wasn’t exactly what I expected, but I loved every bit of it. This is the first novel that I have read by David Metzenthen, and I hope to read more of his works.
