AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Australia, 1996. The winds of change begin to blow like a gale through the nation as a new government has taken the reins.

'"From now on people will have to make their own way in the world. People will no longer be rewarded for being weak. The madness is over... The people have spoken. This is what they want, this is what we voted for, and if you don't see it like me, then you are out of step. So get used to it."

'Nick's out of step; he's a writer. No writer has ever lived in Liberal Street before. And the residents are making sure he knows it.' (Publisher's blurb)
