Publishers Description: Shortlisted for the Barbara Jefferiss Award. Too Close To Home takes us right inside who we really are. How tenuous the links are that build a life. Freya writes uncomfortable domestic dramas. Her friends work in theatre and film, show in galleries, talk politics and are trying new ways of having children with friends. These are the people who are slowly gentrifying the next ring of inner-city suburbs while praising their diversity. As the stultifying heat of summer descends, Shane, an Aboriginal man, moves up the road. He was once close to Matt, Freyas partner, and he not only brings with him a different approach to life, he also has news of a boy who might be Matts son. Despite wanting to embrace all that Shane represents and the possibility of another child in their life, Freya and Matt stumble, failing each other and their beliefs.
