$33.00 Inc GST
Enid is many things: lesbian, serial dater, deaf in one ear, space obsessive, true crime fanatic. When she’s not listening to grizzly murder podcasts, she’s managing her crippling phobia of bald people and trying hard not to think about her mortifying teenage years – which is hard, when she’s lost the password to her old YouTube account and the (many) vlogs that her teen self once uploaded. She’s worried about herself, her depressive mother, and what the deal is with gender reveal parties. But as Enid fumbles her way through her first serious relationship and navigates a new family life with her estranged half-sisters, she starts to worry that someone is following her. As her paranoia spirals out of control, Enid must contend with her mounting suspicion that something is seriously wrong with her…
Full of charm, humour and heart, Interesting Facts About Space is a pitch-perfect exploration of the strange ways we try to connect with others, and the power of sharing our secret selves with the people we love.
A warm, witty and wise novel for anyone who has ever worried that they might be a terrible person, from the author of Everyone in This Room Will Someday Be Dead.
