When Annaliese Winter walks down Curtis Holland's front path, he's ill-prepared for a 16-year-old schoolgirl who's a confounding mixture of adult and child. After years travelling the world with his band, Butterfish, he's not used to having a neighbour at all. So when Curtis receives an invitation to dinner from Annaliese's mother, Kate, he is surprised when he not only accepts but finds himself being drawn to this remarkably unremarkable family.

He's drawn even to 15-year-old Mark, who is at war with his own surging adolescence. Curtis soon realises that with Kate divorced, Annaliese and Mark need a male role model in their lives, but it's hard for him to help when he's just starting to grow up himself - and harder still when Annaliese begins to show an interest in him that is less than filial. Filled with acute observation, humour, and tenderness, Butterfish is Nick Earls at his very best.

    " Really lovely story. Beautifully described Brisbane suburbia. Read it for that alone. It is a gentle & tender story that is wry in it's own way rather than outright & outlandishly funny in a Zig Zag Street kind of way. I really enjoyed it. "

    " Wow this book was ordinary. Not Nick Earls at his best. Despite his protests it is so obviously a story about the band Savage Garden. Fine as the lightest of light Summer reads "

    " Hooked me from the start - Nick Earls is ever readable. Nice account of an ex star finding life in the 'burbs. "

    " A very real book - identifiable characters and set in Brisbane. Would give it 4.5 stars - just a good read. "
