Description - The Overthinkers by Lisa Portolan
Four people, figuring out sex, love, and how to 'adult.' Sydney - one of those places that just consumes you. A private school boy, a tortured drug dealer, a starving writer and a gay outcast, try to do their best as they navigate through the unspoken rules which govern the fast paced, status obsessed harbour city.
Benji: desperate to stand on his own, and be perceived as separate to his status-driven family.
Francesca: plotting her remarkable and glamorous future.
Leo: the confident gay-sian, but despite the pretense, lacks a sense of identity and self-worth.
Hamish: fell into drugs to distinguish himself.
Four stories interlaced together. Anxiety masked as confidence. Ambitions as arrogance. Insecurities which fester ... until the cracks appear in the perfect facade
"I laughed. I cried. Sometimes at the same time!' Tim Ferguson.
"Portolan and Cheong's voices stitch seamlessly together to lay out a funny, honest and extremely relatable story, so clearly born of the 2020s. I couldn't get enough of it!" Marlee Silva
