Summary

Richard Derrington is 28 and single. More single than he'd like to be. More single than he'd expected to be, and not coping well. Since Anna trashed him six months ago he's been trying to find his way again. He's doing his job badly, he's playing tennis badly, his renovating attempts haven't got past the veranda, and he's wondering when things are going to change. Zigzag Street covers six weeks of Richard's life in Brisbane's Red Hill. Six weeks of rumination, chaos, poor judgement, interpersonal clumsiness...and, eventually, hope.

Critic reviews

"This book is a highly enjoyable read." (Amazon)
"Light-footed and funny, Zigzag Street celebrates foolishness with panache." (The Bulletin)
"Zigzag Street is bloated with fantastic ideas, constantly chortling with funny situations and damned clever writing." (The Sydney Morning Herald)
