#amreading - Comfort Zone, Lindsay Tanner

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

This year I've really made an attempt to keep up with debut Australian crime novels - although a few, as with this one, have dodged my faulty radar. Catching up now needless to say.

From the Blurb:

An astute novel about Australian racism — and about humanity prevailing over entrenched prejudice.

Comfort Zone

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
Crime Fiction

An astute novel about Australian racism — and about humanity prevailing over entrenched prejudice.

Jack Van Duyn is stuck in his comfort zone. A pot-bellied, round-shouldered cabbie in his mid-fifties, Jack lives alone, has few friends, and gets very little out of life. He has a negative opinion of most other people — especially refugees, bankers, politicians, and welfare bludgers.
