About this book:

Q is diagnosed with generalised anxiety disorder and resigns as a lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Good Hope in Lumumbaville. Bernice, his pregnant older lover, vanishes one day - without ever confirming that the baby was his. Q's life takes a peculiar turn as he searches for her . . . The Scent of Bliss is a love tale that explores anguish and survival, and the absurdities that define the human condition.
