Wonderful, absurd, dark, but ultimately optimistic. It's about Harry Joy, a thirty-nine year old man who has a heart attack, briefly dies, comes back, and realizes his entire life is a sham. It's so visceral, I could feel it in my bones as I read it. It speaks to our longing for a better, more authentic existence. It's a modern Australian hipppie fantasy about Harry Joy's midlife crisis and ultimate redemption.
