Shaun Prescott’s unsettling, quietly luminous debut has drawn comparisons to Kafka and Calvino, Murnane and Macauley. At once deadpan and hypnotic, realist and surreal, it explores the disquiet that lurks at the heart of Australia’s buried history, and considers what kind of identity can be found in a place on the verge of becoming nowhere.

Taking in a world of peculiar anarchies and regulations, of secret roads and portals that lurk beneath the country’s failing design, Bon and Lesley is an urgent, surreal dispatch from a country intimately familiar with catastrophe, and the powerful second novel from the author of The Town.
