'New job, new friends, no underwear...

Emily McAllister didn’t know how to escape the humiliation of her fiancé cheating on her so she did the only thing she could think of – she moved to Tasmania to take up a teaching position in a Catholic high school. Emily muddles through a year of mistakes, including leaving a student behind on a bush camp and walking in on two students performing a sex act in the school bathroom. Emily is hopeless in love despite her best efforts, either attracting the affections of entirely inappropriate suitors or failing to attract the attention of the object of her own affection. Written as a series of emails from Emily to her friends back in Victoria, TasWhacked is the story of a woman treading her own path and making no apologies for it' (publication blurb).

Notes

  • D'Elia was inspired to write this story partly due to an assignment she was given while studying for her Masters degree and partly due to a deep-seated love of Tasmania instilled in her during her time there as a teacher.
  • Dedication: For Sarah Cupit, who taught me the penis game
