About this item

When There's Nowhere Else to Run is a collection of stories about people who find their lives unraveling. They are teachers, lawyers, nurses, firemen, chefs, gamblers, war veterans, hard drinkers, adulterers, widows, and romantics. A survivor of Victoria's Black Saturday bushfires takes asylum with old friends in the Dandenong Ranges. An editor-in-chief drives his sister halfway around the country to an east-coast rehabilitation clinic. A single mother flies to Perth with her autistic son for one last holiday. A father at the end of his tether tries to survive the chaos of the Sydney Royal Easter Show. A group of young friends hire a luxury beach house in the final weeks of one of their lives. A postman hits a pedestrian and drives off into the night. Seeking refuge all across Australia, from the wheat belt of Western Australia to the coastline of Victoria, they discover that no matter how many thousands of miles they put between themselves and their transgressions, sometimes there's nowhere else to run.
