The Things That Happen When Falling in Love brings together suggestions of words, and people on the move to create an image of a world where the fortunes of both love and labour are framed and dismantled by global forces. Like on-shore sweethearts bidding farewell to men in sailing ships, the world watches its own histories float away. Sometimes, only the words for knowing loss and longing remain.
