I just finished reading Boy Swallows Universe by a Brisbane author, Trent Dalton. I haven’t read Australian fiction in years because we were inundated with it in High School English curriculum, so I honestly avoided this one for a while when I first saw people posting about it online. I got gifted it last month though and gave in to my curiosity. I’m so glad I did - it’s incredible. I finished it in a few days. There’s something about reading a book set in your home town that makes it even more special. I highly recommend it.
