Richard has a secret life, represented by the inner voice of Nora, that compels him to dress and think as a female. Richard is now 53, and leads a lonely existence in his now-dead mother's cottage on the rocky south coast of Wellington, New Zealand. He reflects on his life and his attempts to 'find his own skin' and 'play his own song'. The faux autobiographical nature of the writing, the real settings and the focus on personal memory bring to life his dreams and dilemmas, and bring him to a sort of reconciliation and transformation.
