Paradise Estate

Max Easton

Set over the course of a year, against the backdrop of pandemic and war, of climate and housing crises, Paradise Estate documents the struggle against generational confusion and social malaise. Written with ironic wit and an eye for contemporary events, this follow-up to Easton’s Miles Franklin longlisted The Magpie Wing sets the pessimism of its times against the optimism of the will.

Max Easton: a note on Paradise Estate

‘I tried to take notes and wrap a narrative around all these events, to find parallels by way of allegory, to satirise the process itself as I went, allowing the march of 2022 to dictate the progress of the book. It was much more of an experimental process than I imagined, and it took a lot of work to bring it into some kind of order.’
