Cosmic Latte is a name scientists have assigned to the average colour of the universe - here it is a shade of nail varnish...The territory - forbidden sex, sex as passport, illegal activities, drugs, heavy drinking, smuggling...those who have been displaced...the ambitions that drive desires...forgive. A new collection of eleven dazzling stories of lives lived on either side of boundaries, and on the fringes of society, is teeming with unforgettable characters whose dreams, yearnings and regrets are at once unique and universal, from Dylan Thomas Prize-winner Rachel Trezise. Here, deep tragedy rubs shoulders with sharp comedy as children come of age and adults come to terms.
