Rate this:
Winner 2005 Queensland Premier's Literary Award - Best Emerging Author A lonely junkmailer, his bag full of real estate leaflets, wanders the streets of a sleeping subtropical city. With adventure in his heart, his search for letterboxes takes on epic proportions throughout the night as dream and reality collide.

Accompanied by a host of bizarre companions - a girl who has forgotten how to cry, a Polish-Aboriginal clairvoyant, a mysterious ringmaster, and a tribe of watchful white tigers - the junkmailer is led on a quixotic journey through the night-time streets of a city desperately in need of redemption. Why the city needs to be saved is another question entirely.

Assured, whimsical, and alive with unforgettable characters, The Long Road of the Junkmailer is an astonishing debut.
