'Quirky, magical, melancholic and utterly readable' BOOKSELLER AND PUBLISHER SHORTLISTED FOR THE COMMONWEALTH WRITERS' PRIZE BEST FIRST BOOK A lonely junkmailer, his bag full of real estate leaflets, wanders the streets of a sleeping subtropical city. With adventure in his heart, his search for letterboxes takes on epic proportions throughout the night as dream and reality collide. Accompanied by a host of bizarre companions - a girl who has forgotten how to cry, a Polish-Aboriginal clairvoyant, a mysterious ringmaster, and a tribe of watchful white tigers - the junkmailer is led on a quixotic journey through the night-time streets of a city desperately in need of redemption. Assured, whimsical, and alive with unforgettable characters, The Long Road of the Junkmailer is an astonishing debut.
