Michael Nicholson: This Imaginary Feeling of Being Australian
|Verlag:||novum pro Verlag|
When a typographical error causes
Australia to buy 150 submarines
instead of 15, major consequences
follow. While the mistake nearly
bankrupts the economy, it also turns
the country into a naval superpower.
The nation is outraged and there is a
seismic change in the political
landscape. The Greens are swept into
government with an overwhelming
majority and Bob Brown becomes
President of Australia, unopposed.
This political satire is fast moving and
a great story, a lot of it being set in
the pristine, but threatened, Tarkine
rainforest. Readers from the entire
world will enjoy this humorous, yet
very intelligent, chronicle of events in
Australia and, indeed the world,
making it a better place.
