Christchurch, post quakes, and the earth is still settling. Containers line the damaged streets, whose inhabitants waver, suspended between disaster and recovery. Tony, very much alive, is declared dead, Gerald misreads one too many situations, and boomer Carla tries online dating. At the epicentre of these magnetic stories is twenty-something Flick who faces another violent disruption – this time in human form. Join us for the launch of Amy Head‘s new collection of stories Signs of Life, which turns on the smallest of details to tell the biggest of stories: how we carry on.
