Product description


‘Joyous. Simply joyous. I hugged myself as I read it. My heart raced, swelled, burst; my eyes leaked tears; my stomach ached from laughter. Boy Swallows Universe is – I can't think of a word more apt – magical. This vibrant, vital, altogether miraculous coming-of-age novel marks the debut of an exquisitely gifted storyteller … and what's more, it's transformative: after reading Trent Dalton's book, you won't be the same as you were before’ AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window

‘Chock full of magic and what it really means to be a good person. The Bell brothers will stay with me for a very long time’ Rachael Brown, Guardian

‘Marvellous … filled with beautifully lyric prose … exceptional’ Booklist (Starred Review)

‘The best Australian novel I have read in more than a decade' Sydney Morning Herald

‘The most extraordinary writer – a rare talent' Nikki Gemmell

‘Unsuspectedly joyous… sad, warm, witty’ The Australian

Book Description

An utterly wonderful novel of love, crime, magic, fate and coming of age, set in Brisbane's violent working class suburban fringe – from one of Australia's most exciting new writers.
