Ned is 15. He and his friends while away their days smoking dope, trying to root chicks and surfing at Maroubra. Ned's life is only just beginning - tomorrow, some time. Ned is 35. He and his mates drift through the days snorting cocaine, trying to root chicks, clinging to the pub and surfing at Bondi. For Ned, this is it - tomorrow never came. What happens when life passes you by? When the drugs no longer work and the promise of the future has become the wreckage of the past? What happens when a generation of men lose their way? Confrontingly honest, blackly funny, THE LOST BOYS is a compelling look at the dark side of being a 21st century man from a powerful new voice in fiction.
