Set in a not-too-distant future where the Eastern states of Australia have become the world’s newest autocracy – a place where pop music is propaganda, science is the enemy, nationalism trumps all – Big Time is an antifascist ode to the power of pop music and a lament for the end of your 20s. A satirical black comedy about art in the face of entropy, wrapped up in a spec-fic road-trip saga. A novel packed full of characters and ideas for fans of Jennifer Egan, Emily St Mandel and Kurt Vonnegut – think Almost Famous meets Slaughterhouse 5.
