The stories in Carthaginian Peace and Other Stories are centred in the domestic and everyday. They follow youngish lovers and domestic partners attempting to find a cure for a cosmic loneliness in an unstable society. Mothers spurn guilt, couples seek pleasure alone, and friends sit topless in parks, slack off, or dream about building a shipping-container home, and look to the sky hoping to find a place for people like them.
