Bennett's debut is narrated by a nameless woman living in a small cottage in rural Ireland. Instead of relating a straightforward narrative she progresses via digression: lamenting the broken knobs on her kitchen's mini-stove, pondering the deeper meaning of a novel about the last woman on Earth, observing a storm and recalling past sexual misadventures. Gradually a picture of a young woman who has left the world of jobs and adult responsibility in the hope of finding an altenative way of living in and comprehending the world emerges from the narrator's consciousness. The result is a series of tableaus -oblique, funny, acute and melancholy.
