Her style is precise and colourful, and the text is like a collage. She uses diary entries, email messages, newspaper headlines and quotations, weather reports and conversation exchanges with friends and acquaintances to paint a vivid image of what her life was like while living in Wellington. I liked how she describes her moods, which were often echoed by the changing weather --or maybe it was the other way around.
There are also some accounts of the holidays she took in Indochina, Sydney, Barcelona and a short stay in Tokyo that I really enjoyed.
I felt hungry for more when I reached the final page.
