Andrea Macrae’s Trucksong is now rolling out in digital form across a number of platforms. You can get it from the publisher at Twelfth Planet Press – Trucksong. Or from any number of reliable online retailers.
What’s it about?
In a post-apocalyptic Australian landscape dominated by free-wheeling cyborgs, a young man goes in search of his lost lover who has been kidnapped by a rogue AI truck – the Brumby King. Along the way, he teams with Sinnerman, an independent truck with its own reasons for hating the Brumby King. Before his final confrontation with the brumbies, he must learn more about the broken-down world and his own place in it, and face his worst fears.
What are the cultural touchstones?
This genre-bending work of literary biopunk mixes the mad fun of Mad Max II with the idiosyncratic testimony of works like Peter Carey's True History of the Kelly Gang or Irvine Welsh's Trainspotting.- (source: lifted from the TPP webstore)
