Meet Keddy Flett, a beer-bellied twenty-six year old man who needs change in his life. Desperately. And so, with more neuroses than Woody Allen to his disadvantage, Keddy and his Chinese girlfriend Poppy Lin flee Sydney, Australia, in favour of South America. However, Keddy is about to encounter his demons in the most awkward, tense and socially paralysing way possible... Told from Keddy's point of view, in a stream-of-conscious first person narrative, the reader hitches a ride in the distorted, sarcastic and hilarious crevasses of Keddy's brain as he swings through Argentina, Bolivia and a cast of colourful and kooky characters - characters sometimes likeable but mostly gaggingly stab-able. Swallow the Swell is LESS THAN ZERO smashed into A MILLION LITTLE PIECES and stuffed into CATCHER IN THE RYE. The novel revolves around its two central characters, long-term couple Keddy and Poppy, as they 'bus it' through Argentina and Bolivia, frequenting a plethora of dingy hostels along the way. Its narrative follows the couple's adventures as they explore their own relationship, leading to thunderous laughs and deal-breaking verbal collisions.
