Strangers in Between


Published with Holding the Man

Shane has fled his family and is seeking refuge in Sydney's Kings Cross. Confused and naïve, he meets two strangers: the ultra-urban Will, who offers brotherhood, sex and something unexpected; and Peter, a fifty-year-old gay man whose mother is dying in a nursing home. With their help - or hindrance - Shane grapples to reconcile himself with events from his past. But how can he move on when he can't even use laundry powder?

EXTRACT: There are Lebs there too. And junkies. Junkie Lebs. Terrorist junkie Lebs everywhere and the drought. Council's got to do something. More roundabouts. Ivan Milat's running for alderman but. Shooters Party and a Family First preference deal, they reckon. It's such a hot day. Come back. We'd drive straight to the pool. Straight down the highway. Straight through town. Straight to the pool. Dive in and swim to the other side.
