A novel by

 
 
When a developer asks Peter to assess a prime piece of Queensland real estate ? the Pickersgill Peninsula Showgrounds ? he jumps at the chance. It will give him time out from having to be with the family he loves. And it will take him back to his childhood home; to his parents, his twin sister, Pearl, and his brother, Gary, the TV weatherman.

Over these few days, he will come to realise that sometimes when you go back to where you came from you find out how much you actually have, and how much you could lose. He just has to make his mind up, and listen to the advice that?s given by, of all people ? the King of Hot Dogs.

But will he?

'For a novel that has so few pretensions, this is a skilfully constructed story that manages to be insightful, understated and very funny simultaneously' - Sydney Morning Herald

'William McInnes is insightful, thoughtful and funny. He has a flair for fiction as much as memoirs and non-fiction, as The Laughing Clowns will attest' - The Daily Telegraph
