Michael Milosovic, builder, amateur architect, developer, landowner and mayor of the Australian town Coddington St George (pop. 5,499) wants to be elected to the shire council and hence to the Queensland State Planning Committee. To achieve this ambition, he needs publicity. What better, he thinks, than making a community movie extolling the delights of life in Coddington St George. He'll be the producer and the star. But there's a problem. He knows nothing about movie making. So he hires Jack Wilcon, a Hollywood 'producer', to come to Coddington and make the movie.

In this hilarious satire on small-town politics and the lowest-of-low-budget movie making, Alexander Cade's cast of quirky characters and insights into two very different worlds make A Town Like Ours a delight from start to finish.

You won't rest until you know how this comedy of errors ends.

Review quote

"A Town Like Ours by Alexander Cade is a droll look at big-city con men, small town hypocrites, and the fireworks that occur when they intersect. Cade has created an amazing, and amazingly flawed, cast of characters; impossible to love, but hard to turn away from.
This is a book that, once you start reading, is hard to put down. The pace varies, which is a good thing, because you'll need the occasional break to recover from laughing at Jack's misfortunes. A masterful job. Don't miss this one." Charles Ray, Awesome Indies Book Awards.
