Mix Tape begins at a party in Sheffield in 1978, where Alison and Dan are teenagers beginning a fledgling relationship. It then picks us up and drops us in the present day - Dan is now a music journalist in Edinburgh and Alison a suddenly acclaimed writer in Australia. They're both married and have children, but Alison was the girl Dan never forgot; why she disappeared that summer in 1979, he never knew. Now, by chance, he's found her again. And what better way to start up a conversation than by exchanging songs from their youth, building up a picture of their lives and everything that's changed?"--Publisher.
