The Courier's New Bicycle - Kim Westwood What I liked the most about this book was any strong gender expression was performative. For some reason not made explicit in the book, characters kept asking Sal to find things out for them. Frankly, Sal was not good at this. Things happened. Sal was there to notice them, or not as the plot went. The renaming of Melbourne's streets and landmarks was more distracting than anything else, one of those world-building tricks a writer distracts themselves with when they're blocked. A fun, fast read.
