In a suburb called Success, failure is not an option. Harry and Louisa look like an ordinary couple. They live in an ordinary house in an ordinary street in a suburb called Success. Harry says it is better to let sleeping dogs lie. But Buster their dog isn’t one for lying still, and even Harry can’t resist digging up the lawnmower he finds buried in the yard. Louisa, too, wishes things would just stay as they are. But sometimes, if you dig a little deeper, past the losses, the secret longings, the broken dreams, you find the most surprising things.
