Book launch: Dancing Home by Paul Collis

Blackie and Rips are fresh out of prison when they set off on a road trip back to Wiradjuri country with their mate Carlos. Blackie is out for revenge against the cop who put him in prison on false grounds. Part road-movie, part ‘Koori-noir’, Paul Collis’ novel announces a highly original and darkly funny new voice in Australian writing.
