Richard Derrington is 28 and single. More single than he'd like to be. More single than he'd expected to be, and not coping well. Since Anna trashed him six months ago he's been trying to find his way again. He's doing his job badly, he's playing tennis badly, his renovating attempts haven't got past the veranda, and he's wondering when things are going to change. Zigzag Street covers six weeks of Richard's life in Brisbane's Red Hill. Six weeks of rumination, chaos, poor judgement, interpersonal clumsiness...and, eventually, hope.

    " My favourite Nick Earls novel... but it probably helps if you're Australian and live in Brisbane. "

    " Absolutely loved this book. Funny, sad, surprising... Awesome! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 10/19/2013

    " Another Aussie title from my sister--a book set in Brisbane, where she lives. Very funny with a sweet ending. I'd actually give it 3.5 if we could award half-stars. "

    " I used to live a block away from Zig Zag street in red hill. Earls gets the character of the suburb down perfectly. Still a pretty dopey story, but easy going and good fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sars | 6/6/2013

    " My absolute favourite Nick Earls novel. It's one of those rare books that has you laughing out loud. So funny and so very Aussie. "

    " Light, fluffy, enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 5/2/2013

    " I was quite young when I read this book but I still remember reading this book on the bus and laughing out loud. The person next to me asked me for the name of the book so they could buy it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rochelle | 3/10/2013

    " Oh I loved this book. It reverberated to my core with me in my early 20's.....I felt like I was living in a Nick Earls book. I understood his characters cos they were me and my friends....I lent this to my brother and thought it was stupid!!! Ah, the relevance of a time! "

    " I can't endorse the review of "laugh out loud funny", but it was amusing and filled a lull between books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ambika | 2/14/2013

    " Good read, random and funny. I quite enjoy Nick Earls' style of writing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kerry | 2/10/2013

    " life from a whiny/whingers point of view - perfect for Emo's who feel everything in life is stacked up against them and people who are so utterly useless thay fail to seize the day - any day that is ;-) "

    " "And I want to go into the lounge room now with her coffee and tell her. Tell her now. You remind me of no-one." "
