David’s journalism students petrify him. Then again, so does his cat.
His girlfriend broke up with him, he writes about bars for a newspaper that’s abandoned news reporting for lifestyle articles, and he’s desperately searching for meaning amongst the backdrop of Sydney’s shallow social scene.
Then he meets a young woman who just might be the answer. The only problem is, she’s a friend of one of his students.
Drowning in the Shallows is a satire on male behaviour and Sydney society. Melbourne Books is publishing it in May.
