What would you do if all you held to be familiar was lost?
Conjuring a dark future for Australia, Closing Down gives us a glimpse into a world fractured by a financial crisis and the effects of global climate change. The inaugural winner of The Richell Prize for Emerging Writers.
Australia's rural towns and communities are closing down; much of Australia is being sold to overseas interests; states and countries and regions are being realigned worldwide.
Town matriarch Granna Adams, her grandson Roberto, the lonely and thoughtful Clare - all try in their own ways to hold on to their sense of self, even as the world around them fractures.
The past is long gone. The question now is: do they have a future?
An extraordinary and timely debut novel from a compelling new Australian voice.
