These Mortal Cells is the life story of an Australian man who was sexually abused as a child. He suffers enormous trauma and social exclusion as a result. As a kind of pain killer, when puberty sets in, he drinks heavily and takes a lot of drugs. He tries to live a normal life but can't. He goes to university in Brisbane, travels a lot, does menial work and works as a teacher for ten years in various non-English speaking countries, but can't escape childhood. Wherever he goes, abuse goes too. He can never associate sex with love because of the sexual abuse he suffered. He has long drawn out obsessions with women that always end in a mess. Subsequently, in London, he murders a man, a complete stranger, who is a symbol of the world that he feels has rejected him. He goes on the run in Poland for 14 months teaching English, but eventually is arrested by Scotland Yard. He is extradited back to England where he receives a life sentence for murder. During his 16 years in jail he becomes a writer and learns how to succeed.
