The Italian Job

The Italian Job

A Novella by

Comedienne Meg--the protagonist of Earls' upcoming "Tumble Turns," originally published in print as "The Thompson Gunner"--and her publicist Mal taxi around Australia on a media tour, discussing life, illnesses, and penile implants along the way.

Contains a special preview of Tumble Turns!

"Earls' prolific oeuvre of 12 novels and two short-story collections has steadily built him an international reputation as a contemporary writer who makes comic yardage--from subtle irony to groan-out-loud gags--out of the emotional entanglements of decent men during episodes of self-evaluation and transformation."
-Sydney Morning Herald

"Contemporary, cliche-free Australian fiction that is sure to have a very wide appeal."
-The Australian

"Earls' appeal is his skill for developing lovable, self-deprecating Aussie males in the 18-40 year-old range."
-Stage Whispers

"Earls paints the battle of the sexes as a friendly duel with plenty of promising common ground, and readers should enjoy this amiable, well-crafted and genuinely romantic book."
-Publishers Weekly on "Perfect Skin"

"Nick Earls is on a literary trail trodden by J.D. Salinger . . . Where this at times very funny and insistently poignant novel achieves its momentum is in the careful pacing of character and slow release of emotions."
-The Age on "Monica Bloom"
