Product description

Product Description

Vaslav is a boy with a sordid past and a tenuous future. Born 'Johnny' to a drug addict, prostitute mother in Brighton, England, Johnny becomes Vaslav when, at age seven, his mother dies from a heroin overdose and a passing stranger brings him to a very different life in Australia, where he passes him off as his own son. It seems the seeds of ruin lie deep within Johnny's genes, however, and all the luxuries of an elite life at the pinnacle of Sydney's art world cannot protect him, or his new father from the perils of the past. Glove Puppet is a modern-day twist on Oliver Twist and a harrowing illustration of how the best intentions can lead to the worst results.

About the Author

Born in Melbourne, Australia in 1964, Neil was dubiously educated at various high schools and at Camberwell Boys Grammar. At the age of seventeen he abandoned his education and suburban family home life for the lure of life's more ephemeral things. He was worked in publishing for many years, has been a frequent contributor to OUTRAGE magazine in Australia and is a regular columnist for Sydney's Capital Q.
