Ben Wallymacher has always struggled to keep up with Francis. Friends from childhood, their lives diverge as they battle with the big questions - relationships, fathering, the limits of spontaneity, the usefulness of seventies obsessions like the "human potential movement" - until they're drawn together again by Francis' elusive daughter, Piaf.
This ironic, comic novel flits from the past to the present, weaving a tale of life's journey with some psychodrama and gurus, armed robbery and prison, New York and Fremantle, the Chelsea Hotel and Adele's B & B.
It's about an ordinary man trying not to make too much of a wally of himself.
