When photographer’s assistant Gary Holland meets three Australian underpants models—all called Bruce—on what should be a routine shoot in LA, it turns out to be anything but.
He falls for the geekiest, yet sexiest, Bruce of them all, but soon learns Bruce has not only never been with another man but is an anxious virgin. Bruce lives in the whimsically named town of Come By Chance in northern New South Wales, population 178.
After a torrid fling starts in California, Bruce wants Gary to visit him in the land down under. Shocks, laughter, love, a shy kangaroo named Phillip, a goose called Zeus and a tractor that thinks it’s a horse, soon welcome Gary to a life he never thought he’d want to live.
Can two men who are such opposites make a life together? Does love like this really…come by chance?

: 'I have starved in some of the most beautiful places in the world ...' The Irish Times food writer Theodora FitzGibbon's bohemian appetite for love, pleasure, good food and adventure took her all over the globe until she died, in Dublin, in 1991. Her two-volume autobiography reveals a life fully lived: the names she used before settling on 'Theodora'; the cookery ons given to her by the former Queen Natalie of Serbia; the 1920s childhood spent on food-chomping travels with her rakish naval officer father in Europe, the Middle East and India. Paris in the 1930s was home to Theodora's struggles to maintain an independent life as a young actress, where she began an affair with photographer Peter Rose Pulham and kept company with Balthus, Cocteau, Dali and Picasso. She escaped wartime Paris to live in London during the Blitz and was friendly with Dylan and Caitlin Thomas, Augustus John, Francis Bacon, Shane Leslie and Soviet spy Donald Maclean.
She adopted Gwladys the penguin and Mouche the poodle.
She married Irish-American writer Constantine FitzGibbon in 1944 and divorced him fifteen famously stormy years later. In 1960 she married George Morrison, the film maker and archivist, and they lived together in Dalkey in the house with the 'sea at the bottom of the garden'. Be enthralled by the fascinating story behind the woman who broadened the culinary horizons of many people in Ireland and beyond. In this highly entertaining memoir, discover the sights, sounds and tastes of Theodora FitzGibbon - food writer, adventurer and thoroughly modern woman. 'Theodora FitzGibbon was the most extraordinary woman. If you read her autobiography you realise how many lives she led. And in fact how many people she was all rolled into one.' Maeve Binchy
