Now living with his adoptive mother, Donna, Pete Lomax is not only a brave and gifted diarist but a devoted listener of Noone's show.

As he walks a vertiginous line between truth and illusion, he is finally forced to confront all his relationships familial, romantic and erotic. As complex and hypnotically
