This story was first published in 'Take Me With You', ed Sarah Macdonald, Bantam Books 2005. It explores my own love/hate relationship with Norway, along with the indulgent one-way relationships of (at least my own) ex-pat existence. I'm quite proud of it as a piece.


Blossom explores a male's ambivalent viewpoint toward fatherhood. I wrote from experience. This story became the opening story for the play 'Little Gods', which centred on three men's reactions to major turning points in their lives.
