This book has got a lot of good bits. It's got bogans and penguins and toasted sandwiches and spotting knives. It's got a dead cat and an awesome climax. It's got a really little dolphin. It's got hundreds of hard-ons. It's got sea lions. It's got God. It's got a really cool lighthouse. AND IT'S NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE. When Nige runs over a Norwegian backpacker while attempting to save petrol, his life really turns to shit. He chucks the body in a nearby roadworks and runs to his best mate of fifteen years, Deano. Trouble is, Deano's not really the guy you should turn to in a crisis. This off-kilter tale of male camaraderie is a bizarre debacle from start to thrilling finish. An irreverent comedy by Duncan Sarkies, the writer of the movie Scarfies and the award-winning book Stray Thoughts and Nosebleeds.
'It's not often you read a novel which makes you laugh out loud over and over again as you turn the pages. Two Little Boys is one of those books: quick, clever, twisted, acutely funny... ' Linda Herrick, Weekend Herald 'This is the most amazing book. It's dark, wildly funny, vivid, and brilliantly original.' Fiona Farrell 'Twisted, surprising and very very very funny. Did I put too many verys? I don't think so.' Jemaine Clement, 'Flight of the Conchords'
