In her early twenties and with a marriage already behind her, Diane Brown set off across the world by ship. En route she finds a succession of men. But where was she en route to? There was the UK, the home of her forebears, but she hadn't gone all that way to sit in an office. There was the trip through Europe, the big O.E. that so many New Zealanders had done, but it wasn't until she reached Greece that she felt at home and bold enough to steal meat from a sheep's head and stage a sit-down strike. She finds the Adonis she was searching for but only when she returns to England. And is he all he claims to be? From a vantage point nearly thirty years on, Diane Brown looks back at the stranger who was once herself, the woman who was yet to become a writer, and tries to make sense of the old self as well as the new.
