Description - Gotham by Nick Earls

Wisdom Tree - Five novellas by best selling author Nick Earls

The novella is back disturbing the literary waters and Australia is leading the surge. Inkerman & Blunt is stirring the waves with these five pocket-sized finely crafted, richly intelligent novellas to be released one novella at a time, on the first of every month from May to September 2016. Wisdom Tree is the accessible book for twenty-first century time-poor, screen devoted readers.

Published as Cargoes in Griffith Review 50 Tall Tales Short-The Novella Project III, Gotham tells of the encounter between music journalist, Jeff Foster, and `boy pharaoh', Na$ti Boi. It reveals how hollow celebrities cast their spell. Think, Bonfire of the Vanities, Tom Wolfe.

Nick Earls is the award winning author of twelve novels and numerous shorter works. With the publication of the Word Hunters trilogy (Penguin 2012--2013), he is now officially also a children's writer. Find out more about him at:

"This floored me. The format is a game changer and the linked novellas combine to create the best book I've read in 12 years, since David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas. Five complex and distinct stories set in New York, Brisbane, Vancouver, Alaska, and L.A. that somehow magically meet-I can't quite believe it. Earls has never had his due but if this doesn't get incredible press from here to Timbuktu, then publishing truly is broken. Or maybe he just fixed it, because Wisdom Tree is a transcendent wonder." ~ Chris Flynn, author of Tiger in Eden and The Glass Kingdom.

'Gotham is the deceptively unobtrusive short book that marks the beginning of one of the most ambitious fiction projects being undertaken in Australian publishing.' Read the full review as published in The Australian.

"You can't write better than this. It's simply perfect." ~ Elizabeth Gilbert
