AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Rin Braden is almost ready to give up on life after the heart-breaking death of her lover Yamaan and the everyday dread of working for her mother's corrupt private prison company. But through a miracle, Yamaan has survived and turns up in an immigration detention facility in Australia, trading his labour for a supposedly safe place to live. This is no ordinary facility, it's Eaglehawk MTC, a manufactory built by her mother's company to exploit the flood of environmental refugees. Now Rin must find a way to free Yamaan before the ghosts of her past and a string of bad choices catch up with them both. In its vision of the future, Daughter of Bad Times explores the truth about a growing inhumanity as profit becomes the priority.'

Works about this Work

Rohan Wilson : Daughter of Bad Times Chris Flynn , 2019 single work review
— Appears in: The Saturday Paper , 4-10 May 2019;

'Great science fiction often tackles portentous real-world events. The genre provides a heady platform for the extrapolation of ideas, imagining what might happen if a current situation were pushed to extremes. Tasmanian-born author Rohan Wilson embraces the liberty of genre conventions in his latest book. Having thus far examined his home state’s brutal colonial history in the novels The Roving Party and To Name Those Lost, he changes tack by leaping five decades into the future with Daughter of Bad Times, a layered novel that can be read as a doomed love story, a climate change warning and a searing commentary on Australian refugee policy.' (Introduction)
