Meet Martin Dean: the man his country loves to hate, and his son hates to love. He spent his life analysing anything and everything, and imparting his self-garnered wisdom to his only son, Jasper. Only now that his father is dead can Jasper fully reflect on the man who raised him in his own extraordinary style, and realise that, for all its unstoppable lunacy, their was a great adventure.
As he recollects the fantastical events that led to his father’s last days, Jasper recounts a boyhood of outrageous schemes and shocking discoveries – about his infamous criminal uncle Terry, his mysteriously absent mother, and Martin’s constant losing battle to make his mark on the world. From the Australian bush to bohemian Paris to the judges of Thailand – stopping off at strip clubs, asylums and labyrinths – and from the highs of first love to the lows of failed ambition, this is an unforgettable, rollicking and deeply moving tale.
