From the Stella shortlisted author of Poum and Alexandre, this is a heartwarming novel about longing, absence and the people we unexpectedly come to love.

After many years spent living in Seoul, a young man called Harold drifts back to Australia and rents a room above a fish and chip shop called The Sea & Us. Who he meets and what he experiences there propels him to question his own yearnings and failings, and to fight for meaning and a sense of place that can only be reached by facing what is lost. By turns electric, tender, and hopeful, The Sea & Us is a gem of literary imagination.

Catherine de Saint Phalle brilliantly captures disparate characters and their common human desire for community and connection.
