The Suicide Season (Paperback)

The Suicide Season By Jeremy Gadd Cover Image
Not On Our Shelves - Available to Order


When demoralised Warren Yeats abandons his failing business, his ex-wife and his city lifestyle to embark on a road trip with more twists and turns than Sydney's streets, he has no idea how gruelling the outback can be.

Set during tropical Australia's oppressively humid build-up to the annual monsoon--the Suicide Season--when tempers are short, children are constantly irritable, and adults are tight-lipped, Yeats stumbles across an illegal wildlife poaching operation, falls in love with an attractive female mechanic, and becomes an unwitting trespasser on Aboriginal land.

Whether sharing Yeats' admiration for an apricot-hued sunset as it soars across an aurora borealis-like sky, watching nectar-eating parrots getting tipsy on the fermenting blossoms of paper bark trees or learning how to bake damper over hot coals, odds are you have never enjoyed a journey as unique as this, following one of life's nicest losers as he becomes a winner.
