About the book
‘Is she – was she with Johnno?’ said Erica.
‘It doesn’t work like that,’ Trish said. ‘Not like boyfriend and girlfriend stuff, as I’ve been trying to tell you. It’s more – fluid.’
Erica is restless for a life outside her office job, her boring boyfriend and her mother’s tiny house in down-and-out Glebe.
In the 1950s, Sydney is quickly building a reputation for sinfulness, and some of the most attractively sinful people are to be found in a group known as the Push. They meet regularly to discuss their wicked ideas at the Royal George, and Erica is drawn into the captivating crowd.
