A Fraction of the Whole by Steve Toltz

This debut novel by Steve Toltz is a wild read...Meet the Deans. ‘The fact is, the whole of Australia despises my father more than any other man, just as they adore my uncle more than any other man. I might as well set the story straight about both of them.'

Heroes or criminals? Crackpots of visionaries? Relatives or enemies?

From the New South Wales bush to bohemian Paris, from sports fields to strip clubs, from the jungles of Thailand to a leaky boat in the Pacific, A Fraction of the Whole follows the Deans on their freewheeling, scathingly funny quest to leave their mark on the world.
