Anxious but not Alarmed was written in the wake of the 2004 Federal election. It is the story of a man in the middle of a family breakdown, and how his grief and anger are funneled through a government-engendered vision of terrorists and un-Australianism. It details his encounter with two social workers, and the terrible consequences.
