Stella Bellamy is contemporary, middle-aged, chubby, grumpy, and single. But she has learned that when life gives you lemons, forget the lemonade, drink gin and tonic.
Clutching a gin in one hand and an acerbic and hilarious sense of humour in the other, she travels the world and through her own history. Whether in foreign airports or hotels, aeroplanes, tuk-tuks or crumbling taxis, or the comfort of her own home, Stella provides a poignant yet funny view of a diverse and colourful world. Stella revisits her complex emotional past and present, from her teenage relationship with a friend of her father’s, her fear of intimacy, to her relationship with her dying mother from hell.
Stella invites and entices the reader to laugh at this absurd world.

In Euphoria opens in the wake of a freak hurricane-like storm in the middle of Illinois. Pauline and Jared meet at the Goodwill Store, one of the few places with light and company.
As lovers, they are drawn to things they’ve been taught it’s smart to avoid, like tenderness and vulnerability.

If only Pauline can reach Jared and tell him what she’s learned.
