MORE than a year after winning the T.A.G Hungerford Award, Madelaine Dickie’s book Troppo is finally hitting the shelves.
Interweaving black magic, nutty Australians and some monster waves, Troppo follows the life of young surfer Penny, who lands a job working at an Indonesian resort for a man with a shady reputation who begins to turn her life upside down.
Dickie said the book would suit anyone who was curious, intelligent and “ready to risk a thrilling rollercoaster of a read”.
“Surfing is a major part of life for so many people who live along Australia’s coast and I hadn’t read any fiction about Aussies surfing in Indonesia, so this was something I was keen to explore,” she said.
“Indonesia is a banquet for the senses and I want my readers to feel, hear, smell and taste this incredible country.”
Troppo is available from Fremantle Press.
