Christian de Palma: Man of Letters


The unexplained disappearance of a cat; a misunderstanding involving the daughter of his foster parents; an encounter with a succubus-like figure under a bridge in Alice Springs; an incident with a coconut; a tragic fire; and the unwitting participation in a robbery. These are just a few of the events which shape the life of Christian de Palma.

And then there is the burning question: How do sausage rolls come to the rescue of Jodi?

This is the tragi-comic tale of a man whose inner world sets him at odds with the world around him.
