Polites' writing is unpretentious, spare, sharp. Peter's voice is raw, casual, genuine. This is urban storytelling at its best - Maxine Beneba Clarke on Peter Polites.

A contemporary noir novel, Down The Hume explores the nature of obsession and addiction. Hedonistic, confronting and heartbreaking - this story will not only drag you along at a rapid pace - it will tear you in two.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Gritty novel of a Sydney I've never seen before. -- Kali Napier * Netgalley *
smart and pleasantly unnerving -- Oliver Driscoll * Books+Publishing *
Polites' novel ultimately offers a riotous vision of an authentically multicultural Australia that One Nation - and increasingly the far right of the LNP - cannot accept. This makes Down the Hume essential reading in these times of "border protection". * The Saturday Paper *
Feature TO COME * FBi's Book Club *
A novel of addiction, secrets and misplaced love, this is an Australian debut not to be missed + Competition * Queensland Times *
Hume is a robust study of ethnic, class and sexual identities that intersect in contemporary Australia + Article -- Nathan Smith * Weekend Australian *
an edgy debut novel -- Shelley Hadfield * Herald Sun *
Book of the week * Stellar *
