The Overthinkers

AUTHOR: 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 façade "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
