Product description

Review

"Andrew McGahan writes with understated brilliance. A sort of inside-out Aussie odyssey that features two luckless but likable guys trapped on a colonized, bleak peninsula, 1988 is a ruthlessly truthful look at the impossible dream of refusing to grow up." --Michael Drinkard, author of Disobedience

"Untamed and frankly shocking. When 1988 is dismissed as 'another' young man's angsting book by reviewers deaf to the stylistic magic of this book, it makes the joke even funnier." --The Age, Melbourne

"Bukowski, Fante, Welsh, Graham and McGahan. Drink up." --Java Monthly
