For Harry Joy, dying was the first in a series of twisted inconveniences. After a heart attack at age 38, the successful Ad Man awakens to a perverse vision of Australia. Fakes instead of family. Betrayal where there once was loyalty. Cancer everywhere. Insightful as always, Harry concludes this must be Hell, literally.
Peter Carey’s Miles Franklin Award winning novel is a hallucinogenic trip of self-discovery and impulse. In another stellar collaboration from the team behind Picnic at Hanging Rock, the eccentric transformation of Harry Joy is brought to life by Mark Leonard Winter.
Follow Harry as he clamours for his soul, from suburbia to the asylum, destined for a seedy hotel room, and bliss in the back of beyond.
