Overview
-

Tom Stacey has moved into his neighbour's bedsit. He wasn't asked. It was just that the door was open and his neighbors have gone on holiday. And it is so much bigger than his own bedsit. Plus, he has a lot to think about these days. The bees for one. He hasn't seen any but he keeps hearing them, buzzing in the fridge at work, in the overhead lights, in the test equipment in the factory where he has spent the last fifteen years of his working life. They seem to be getting louder and more insistent, and they are beginning to affect the way he goes about his business. Then there is his search for Sarah McCarthy to worry about. Sarah was his first love, when as a teenager, he travelled around the country in the back of a horsebox with his grieving grandfather. But perhaps it is not the bees or the past which is the problem. Perhaps it is his ongoing loneliness. 22 dates with Happy Couples dating agency and nothing to show bar a dent in his bank balance and several complaints about ‘eccentric behavior'. Relationships are all about the details and there are just not enough boxes to tick in the Agency's personal profile form. Armed with a wax model and a list of criteria, Tom sets out on a quest to create a personal profile to find his ideal match. On his journey, he will meet people just like him, warm but unable to show it, lonely and unable to remedy it, the lost, the misplaced and damaged.
