Description

This book has got a lot of good bits. It's got bogans and penguins and toasted sandwiches and spotting knives. It's got a dead cat and an awesome climax. It's got a really little dolphin. It's got hundreds of hard-ons. It's got sea lions. It's got God. It's got a really cool lighthouse. AND IT'S NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE. When Nige runs over a Norwegian backpacker while attempting to save petrol, his life really turns to shit. He chucks the body in a nearby roadworks and runs to his best mate of fifteen years, Deano. Trouble is, Deano's not really the guy you should turn to in a crisis. This off-kilter tale of male camaraderie is a bizarre debacle from start to thrilling finish. An irreverent comedy by Duncan Sarkies, the writer of the movie Scarfies and the award-winning book Stray Thoughts and Nosebleeds.
