Do you ever feel like pulling over? Or feel turned on by the sea? I think I do. An unfiltered ride through the tribulations, confessions, and fuck ups of a young woman in 2022. She is unapologetically honest and impulsive in sharing her frustrations, erotic fantasies, connections and disconnections with men and nature. Her relatable vulnerabilities make Hard Shoulder a double-edged experience of quick-witted humour and heartache. Who can she verifiably trust? Her boyfriends? Her brother? The North Sea? 'Provocative, direct and a little bizarreā€¦ an engaging, raw account of early womanhood' (Epigram).
