Down The Hume (Paperback)Peter Polites (author)
- Publisher reprinting
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.

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 *
