Publisher's Summary

A thought-provoking, discomforting and beautiful novel about love, obsession, community and friendship. 

Nothing But My Body is an eight day journey through a young woman's mind, a queer sex worker in Australia, as she navigates through break ups and infatuation across a year. 

Set during the bushfire season of 2019 and into the coronavirus pandemic, sex work is the constant backdrop of the story as it moves between Sydney, Berlin, Orange and Bellingen. Exploring the interplay between your external and internal world, the fluctuations of mental health and the way in which emotions shape the pace of your thoughts, ultimately it is a rejection of romantic love, celebration of queer community and a reckoning with the body as both abject and joyous.

Loved it

Such a different perspective on a topic I'd rarely heard about. Her writing is beautiful, spiralling from the gritty present to esoteric, lavishly written digressions and tangents. such a talent, and such a love for Australia.
