Fiction Hardcover Book of the Month - April:
Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton!

 

This month's featured new fiction title is Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton. Ed loved this coming of age novel full of originality, charm, pathos, and heart!

Boy Swallows Universe, a wildly entertaining, uproarious, debut novel set in 1980’s Brisbane, Australia (drawing on the author’s own boyhood experiences!) The novel has the comic book, magic-realist feel of a superhero story, but the “hero,” Eli Bell, is a just an “ordinary kid”—except he has a lost father, a mute, genius brother, a mum in jail, a heroin dealer for a stepfather, a notorious criminal for a babysitter, and Brisbane’s biggest drug dealer hunting him down! The novel’s over-the-top, adventure-rich plotline is full of thrills, mystery, daring escapes, mystical voices, heroin dealers and local gangsters, which makes for great entertainment, but the novel’s true strength lies in the tender, honest story of Eli’s emotional family journey, his ambition to become a writer, and his dogged pursuit of love. A coming of age story like you’ve never read before-- brutal, funny, heartbreaking, beguiling from start to finish—and the first GREAT novel I’ve read in 2019! ED LOVED AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDS!!
