Peter Kennedy is a very large man who is remarkably happy with his life. Yet something is not quite right, and it started with a dream that smelt of luncheon meat.
Peter is successful at what he does, even though he is not sure what that is anymore. When Titan Development contracts him to go to Queensland to assess a prime piece of real estate on the Pickersgill Peninsula Showgrounds he jumps at the chance. It will give him time out from having to be with the family he loves. And it will take him back to the home where he grew up; to his parents, who are members of the Show society, his twin sister Pearl, a bingo caller and foster mother, and his brother Gary, the TV weatherman.
Over these few days, he will come to realize that sometimes when you go back to where you came from you find out how much you actually have, and how much you could lose.
All he has to do is make his mind up, and listen to the advice that he is given by, of all people, the King of Hot Dogs.
But will he?
Initially, this book felt a little slow. But that’s how it was meant to be written! It was set only over 2 or 3 days, and it felt like I was reading it in real time. I really enjoyed it! I felt like I was there, and this book invoked a lot of feelings. It makes you really think about relationships that you have, and the people that you love.
