AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'What's a forty-something salesman of made-in-Asia trinkets to do when he comes adrift from the safe moorings of marriage and washes up in the Lime Bar? It's to the Lime Bar, where Gustave the barman dispenses gin and advice with Gallic savoir faire, that Matt Condon's hapless salesman always returns after every misadventure of the heart. Dallying past midnight in a Gold Coast hotel pool, reclaiming his masculinity with the mountain men, sampling the bars and bedrooms of the Sydney scene and losing himself in a fairytale France - the choices are frequently disastrous, the cost of wisdom often too high. And the final adventure is the most unexpected of all. A deliciously witty and bittersweet portrait of a man looking for love in all the wrong places by the award - winning author of The Pillow Fight.'
