Rural Liberties


Product Description

Moralla, a fading seaside town on the ‘beautifully uncivilised’ Sapphire Coast of New South Wales, has won Australia’s 'Tidy Towns' award for two years running.

Now Rebecca Moore — the most beautiful, talented girl in town — is dead, and there’s nothing tidy about it. It seems everyone in this sleepy hollow is breaking bad and something has to be done. Why was she on the Princes Highway at four a.m.? What could have lured her there and how will the town cope with the series of events set in motion by her shocking departure?

When the maverick foundation 'Rural Liberties' sets up a resort offering tantric sexual retreats on Moralla’s fringes, and TV’s longest-running reality show recruits the town’s number two beauty, the town’s moral compass begins to go haywire and a bold new era of debauchery and enlightenment is set to begin. Between celebrity talent quests and lifestyle tourism, some things remain unchanged: dark mutterings from the locals, and the trials of growing up queer in a country town,

This new novel by gay author Neal Drinnan (ex-Sydneysider, but now a resident of a small town himself) is a fast and sparkling satire of cultural collision and celebrity culture.  

''Witty and naughty, but it also has a steely purpose, a real bite to it. An absolute pleasure to read'' - Christos Tsiolkas
