Product description

Review

"Compelling and disturbing" (The Economist)

"A terrific novel, maintained at fever heat" (Guardian)

"Stunning... A brilliant meditation upon the post 9/11 world" (New York Times)

"Flanagan's a novelist and philosopher for our time" (Daily Mail)

"It grips from the very first page and forces you to read on to its explosive, tragic climax" (Sunday Telegraph)

"A damn good story delivered with the glittering prose that only the rage of just moral anger can achieve. Flanagan's Australia is...a global expression of the unknown terrorist in us all" (The Times)

"Genuinely thrilling. The Unknown Terrorist reads like the book of the film it will surely become" (Peter Conrad Observer)

"A thriller of genuine importance...fired by passionate concern" (Daily Telegraph)

Review

"A true page-turner as well as a timely, pithy critique of celebrity culture and the politics of fearmongering." (Publishers Weekly)

"Truly stunning... it is a book both crucial and compelling." (The Canberra Times)

"How could a pole dancer be mistaken for a terrorist? Richard Flanagan makes a pretty convincing argument in his novel, The Unknown Terrorist. It's a harsh story about the power of the Aussie media and a government determined to keep its people scared and compliant. Despite the sad story of Doll, the misunderstood stripper, narrator Humphrey Bower delivers an engaging performance with words that are delightfully unfamiliar. Doll's body is 'at sixes and sevens with itself.' Her boyfriend listens to 'duff music'. When she gets scared, she says, 'Fix me up with a butamine', a medicine used for heart attacks. And c'mon, who doesn't enjoy an authentic Aussie accent?" (AudioFile Magazine)
