    Each chapter, and there's a hundred of them, is a tightly written story in itself somehow relating to one of a hundred Paul Kelly songs:- Anastasia Changes Her Mind "Anastasia left a kiss on the mirror And a couple of condoms by the bed I tried to find her on her old number But I just got her boyfriend instead Oh it's hard, so hard When Anastasia changes her mind" "My second wife Kaarin once had to leave early in the morning on a work trip. She left a lipstick kiss on the mirror in our daughters' bedroom, which stayed there for months until it gradually faded away. It didn't fade from my mind, though. A year later I was talking to my friend Stella about her daughter's upcoming trip to Greece. The girl she'd planned to travel with had fallen in love with a sailor and cancelled at the last moment. "Anastasia always changes her mind," sighed Stella. I put down the phone and picked up a pen."
