Show synopsis Set against the backdrop of the 1989 earthquake that shook Newcastle, Australia, this gripping novel reveals another set of intangible but powerful fault lines--those that exist in the relationships of three couples who reside in adjoining terraces on Laman Street. Revealing the potential they have to change each other's lives irreparably, this tale follows these six characters as they struggle to discover new ways of negotiating marriage and infidelity, careers and unemployment, and friendship and loss. Beginning with their hard-earned knowledge of how to survive one day at a time, this narrative then touches on the protagonists a decade later, when they realize how to live as if each night were their last. Written in spare prose, this chronicle takes ordinary lives and transforms them into something both familiar and extraordinary, creating a compelling portrait of contemporary living.
