Book Title

Black magic, big waves and mad Aussie expats.

In Indonesia, Penny is drifting, partying, hanging out – a thousand miles away from claustrophobic Perth and her career-minded boyfriend. But things take a dangerous turn when she goes to work at Shane’s Sumatran Oasis.

Caught up in the hostility directed at Shane, and flirting and surfing with the hell-man Matt, Penny soon finds herself swept into a world where two very different cultures must collide.

'Where Troppo is particularly sharp ... is in its abstract yet precise evocations of the sensory overload of Indonesia and in its dense, poetic riffs on the almost narcotic pull of chasing waves.'
Weekend Australian

'... as young Perth surfer Penny is drawn further into the unpredictable Australian’s dark heart, the racial and political tensions are ratcheted up to the nth degree, resulting in an explosive climax that will leave you breathless.'
