Every Five Minutes by Bronwyn Elsmore


Gina, if that is her real name, wakes to an autumn morning and, against her better judgement, selects a light dress to wear to work.

In stock


Deliberately, she misses the bus and walks into the city, then turns and walks back home. This is not a day for work. Today she will spend with a white dog and a remarkable man.

Every Five Minutes is also about the colour cornflower blue, beaches, parks, city streets, exotic places, coffee, flowers, polished stones, a unicorn and a swan, words, theatre, movies, music, and love. But most of all it’s about Gina, the dog, and the man.

Every Five Minutes is a B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree.

“Every Five Minutes” is a love story, told from the female narrator’s point of view, addressed to the man she loves. The story is told in short sections, at five-minute intervals during one long day, as Gina recalls the slow growth of the couple’s relationship from its beginning, when she was so hesitant about entering into a relationship of any but the most superficial kind that she preferred to think of their times together as “meetings.”
