Have you ever wished you could glimpse into the lives of strangers – those anonymous faces passed in the produce aisle of the local supermarket, those shadows lurking behind the closed curtains of their homes? Would you be surprised by the rich mixture of personalities, the strange habits and the unexpected insecurities? Perhaps like you they’re also baking blind, no recipe to follow. You might produce a perfect cake, or you might end up throwing the mix in the trash and starting again. And again. And again. Tracey dreams of a life beyond South London. Beyond her job at the Supermart. Beyond what amounts to now. But in a city where everyone is living their own melodrama, where people are disappearing with alarming regularity, and where existence overlaps and separates at every turn, how can Tracey be sure she’s the main character in her own life let alone a bit part in someone else’s? Scott Jason Smith’s brilliant first graphic novel tells the darkly humorous tale of people living their lives both together and apart in a world where everything can change in even the most mundane moment, and where no-one can be sure if their prologue has just started or their epilogue has drawn to a close.
