The book mainly has writing from the age of 16-18, with his early poetry and his play Cain and Abel he wrote in iambic pentameter when he was 18. The poetry is sometimes in meter, sometimes not. It mostly is unrequited love sourced poetry from an unrequited albino love interest and a Lily Cole hair coloured love interest with that poem about a moth in silence striking a note upon her lips. Jarrad Dickson was sick of unrequited love when he was 19 so quite writing poetry for he was writing love poetry or poetry mainly about woman, though carried on writing plays but lost his second play, The Aryan House and The Cabaret Malfunction and burned Pandoras People and Suicide Star State was thrown in the bin.
There are three short stories, one short story he won the creative writing prize for at Dilworth school for boys from straightened circumstances and two short stories of his later writing at the age of 22 called The Holy Products of Pandora and Chinalalbino.
