What happens when you discover you’ve been lied to by the one you love, in life…and death? From our distorted world of reality TV and “fake news” comes a psychological thriller that shocks and surprises at every turn.
Adapted from award-winning French author Amelie Antoine’s audacious novel of love, confusion…and fear. #1 on The Evening Standard’s list of “the 8 best psychological thrillers to read this autumn (2016).”
They were just a Byron Bay six-a-side football team at the bottom of the third division. A bunch of friends looking to get fit, have some summer fun on the pitch and crack a tinny or two after each game.
Then the news broke: each of their partners were pregnant…and the fear set in.
The doctor visits, the uncertain scan results, the strange and sudden sensations, the online research warning of danger at every milestone, the endless advice, anecdotes and warnings from family and friends…is there a more daunting road than that of becoming parents?
In equal doses of belly laughs, cuddly romance, white-knuckle fear and birth plans gone awry, this is six couples’ life-affirming journeys of love, hope, paranoia and panic as life finds it’s way, on the transformational roads from blokehood to fatherhood, from partnership to parentship…while a football team makes its way to the top…of the bottom.
