Meet William. He’s twenty-two. He’s highly intelligent. He’s an acerbic critic of Australian suburban life. And he’s lost. Chafing against his rural-Aussie background, William sees a university career in Thailand as his intellectual salvation, but he just can’t seem to get it together.

When he bumps into a childhood friend, Deliria, now a scorchingly attractive eighteen-year-old music student, she reveals a secret: she’s a compulsive shoplifter.
