Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Odeline Milk is a strange young lady from the suburbs. She is a woman with an obsession - you can guess what it is by the way she dresses: white collarless shirt, a waistcoat and billowing black trousers, the bowler hat. She's on her way to London, to make her name as a great mime artist - or so she hopes. And, typical Odeline, she's arriving prepared: with the small inheritance left her by her mother, she's bought herself an old canal boat. What she doesn't know yet is that, for some, the city's canals are a good place to hide for a community of curious outsiders, all with their own stories to tell.

Complete and unabridged.
