Richard Derrington is twenty-eight and single. More single than he'd like to be. More single than he'd expected to be, and no coping well. Since Anna trashed him six months ago he's been trying to find his way again. He's doing his job badly, he's playing tennis badly, his renovating attempts haven't got past the verandah, and he's wondering when things are going to change.
'Zigzag Street' covers six weeks of Richard's life in Brisbane's Red Hill. Six weeks of rumination, chaos, poor judgement, interpersonal clumsiness . . . and, eventually, hope.

The best Nick Earls
Like the other great Nick Earls novels this is a fun, light hearted page turner. A bit more grown-up than Bachelor Kisses, Zigzag Street gives an uplifting and true portrayal of getting over a broken heart while continuing to be laugh-out-loud funny.
