The hottest bar in a hot Southern city. A US State Highway twisting its way into the Appalachians. An overcast afternoon in an abandoned park in Manchester...
Using a mixture of intimate confessions and half-imagined anecdotes, Fergus weaves a transatlantic gaggle of modern day folk-tales and quiet revelations. It's full of the stories you tell people when they ask you where you're from, and learning that once you leave, you can't go back. It's about making a home from the things you have to hand.
Includes a Foreword by Michelle Green.

"Evans's work drives home a concrete truth coupled with a very poetic need to connect. It's impossible not to be moved by his intention and skill." - Gerry Potter, poet
