Selina is 29-year-old who works in the arts. She loves documentaries that aren't really documentaries, karaoke and friendship. Short/idealist.

Cass is a weirdo who lives on Commercial Drive and works managing festivals, concerts and political campaigns. He enjoys a good cappuccino and is in a casual relationship with local gin. Jaded/pragmatic.

I hardly know what to say about Rosemary Sexton's book, Home Before Dark, and that's a rare gift from an author. It's a rambling, riveting, often trivial diary of her life between 1998 and 2002. Why that span? No particular reason.
