A tranquil country town explodes with bigotry and hate.
At thirty, Andrew feels he's experienced everything life on Oxford Street can offer. It's time for a break. He heads north to visit his mother and grandfather in a small isolated coastal town. But instead of simplicity and tranquility, he finds a community in upheaval.
A spate of shocking vandalism has unsettled everyone; there's religious revivalism, Hansonite politics, and homosexuality of a more dangerous, closeted kind.
In exposing the town's secrets, Andrew has to fight not only for justice, but also for his life. Trashtown is a family saga documenting the breakdown of Australian small town values; a story both funny and sad, shocking and familiar.
