Author of The Deep

From the acclaimed Australian author of the hit novel The Bluffs comes another captivatingly atmospheric story set in the rugged landscape of Tasmania.

Kyle Perry once again draws on his years as a counsellor - in particular, as a counsellor and case manager in a men’s drug and alcohol rehab - to present a novel full of raw, gritty and real characters, many inspired by people he has helped over the years.

The Deep focuses on a fictional family who have all been affected by the drug trade in their hometown - a drug trade their family is responsible for. Powerful matriarchs with local law enforcement under the thumb, missing families, reformed drug dealers, addicts and more are all portrayed in this achingly real book that explores toxic masculinity, what it takes to be a ‘good’ man, the pressures of family, the desire for real change and starting afresh, and the devastating impacts of drugs.

Kyle Perry will be in conversation with Catherine du Peloux Menage from Bad Sydney Crime Writers’ Festival with the support of NSW Public Libraries Association.

Copies of the book can be purchased from Booktopia.
