In the New Country
"When a man dressed in a gorilla suit wins the City to Surf long-distance run in Sydney, the nation is intrigued. Not that Adam Hock, Yarrawongamullee's indomitable promoter of tourism, is much bothered. What with the pressures of organising the High School Class of '61 Reunion and welcoming home from America the area's most famous son, Grammy Award-winning country and western singer Dud Leahey, Ad Hock has more than enough on his plate. With a cast including local firefighters, nonagenarian brothers, a crazed potter, a very confused teenager and a kangaroo sporting Versace sunglasses, David Foster's new novel is a hilarious and insightful look at life in Australia's moribund wool country, as the old way of life clashes with the new." - back cover.

This was a fast moving novel for me. I'm not sure I understand all the things that happened, but it was interesting and quite funny, too. Can you picture a man dressed in a gorilla suit winning the City to Surf long-distance run in Sydney? A mystery to be solved for sure! Read full review
