A man recounts his childhood, spent in rooms blue with smoke and in the company of Tulip Paradis, the girl next door. Through his reflections, he reveals his own journey of sexual discovery from a first stolen glimpse of a girl’s naked legs that destroys his careful strategy of innocence.

With a compelling sense of mystery just below the surface, The Roaring Girl’s twelve short stories showcase Greg Hollingshead’s uncanny ability to turn the world on its head and view life from unexpected perspectives.
