Publisher's Summary

What would you do if all you held to be familiar was lost?

Conjuring a dark future for Australia, Closing Down gives us a glimpse into a world fractured by a financial crisis and the effects of global climate change. The inaugural winner of The Richell Prize for Emerging Writers.

Australia's rural towns and communities are closing down; much of Australia is being sold to overseas interests; states and countries and regions are being realigned worldwide.

Town matriarch Granna Adams, her grandson Roberto, the lonely and thoughtful Clare - all try in their own ways to hold on to their sense of self, even as the world around them fractures.

The past is long gone. The question now is: do they have a future?

An extraordinary and timely debut novel from a compelling new Australian voice.

    "Kept waiting for it to improve - it didn't!"

    I can't believe I listened to this the whole way through! I kept thinking there will be a twist soon, it will get better something will happen, but frustratingly it didn't! This story was crap! I liked the sound of the narrators voice, that's the only thing that kept me listening!
