That dumbshit map. I'd been seduced by it. Seduced by its possibilities. That map had brought me here ... That map had been a serious mistake' The map in question is of Australia, stumbled across in a second-hand bookshop by American journalist Nick Hawthorne, en route to another dead-end hack job in Akron, Ohio. Seduced by all that wilderness, all that NOTHING, Nick decides to put his midlife crisis on hold and light out to the ultimate nowheresville - where a chance encounter throws him into a sun-baked orgy of surf, sex and swill, and a nightmare from which there is no escape. 'Douglas Kennedy might never be allowed into Australia again. This is a crazy, compulsive ultimately serious thriller and a bravura fictional debut from one of our best travel writers' Philip Kerr

  1. En karta över Australien, upptäckt och köpt i...
    Anna Nilsson, 17 november 2013

    En karta över Australien, upptäckt och köpt i secondhand affären, inspirerar huvudpersonen Nick att ta time-out och åka dit. På sin resa tvärs över kontinenten tar han upp liftaren Angie i sin minibuss, men hon har helt andra planer än att bara lifta.
    Berättelsen är rolig, trovärdig och lika gastkramande för läsaren som för huvudpersonen Nick.

A comic triumph * TIME OUT * His story-telling is so deft, and the build-up so detailed and convincing, that the denouement proves to be heart-thumpingly effective * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY * Fluent and entertaining ... a highly accomplished debut... there is an art to telling shaggy-dog stories well, with the right balance of lightness and suspense, and Kennedy shows himself a master of it. * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH * Pulls off that most difficult feat of being hilariously funny and frightening at the same time * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY *
