Ethan Grout realises it's his 27th birthday when he receives a card from the fitness centre he recently quit along with the only job he had ever held. His father's life (and recent funeral) had featured a large cast: but his father had worked in film and travelled the world, whilst Ethan roamed an empty house in the suburbs, trying to convince the neighbours that he wasn't alone.
Having moved into a tiny room above a busy city bar, the buzz and lights of downstairs and the street soothing him to sleep, Ethan takes a new job, and another, and even another - collecting a life as he goes. Ethan Grout journeys through life, challenging himself to create his own gang of misfits when being alone just won't do any more.
This bittersweet novel will strike familiar chords with anyone who has suffered through jobs that resemble glee clubs, cults or blind dates, and who have tried to fit in even when it all just seems too hard.
