We need to talk about Harry Joy. The world revolves around him. Until he dies on a sunny afternoon.

He awakens to a curious vision of the world he has known for 39 years. Fakes instead of family. Allies have become enemies. Conspiracies everywhere. His wife, children and friends attempt to punish him through a series of twisted inconveniences. Harry concludes that this Hell around him has been there the entire time. He’s just been too asleep to see it.

Peter Carey’s madcap novel is brought to life in a lush and extraordinary collaboration from the team behind Picnic at Hanging Rock. Starring Toby Truslove (ABC’s Utopia) and a stellar ensemble cast, follow Harry as he clamours for his soul, from suburbia to the rainforest, and beyond.
