Grub brings its focus to those things we don’t see, to the people on the edges of society who might be a little “grubby”. Its setting is Sydney’s inner west, in a not-too-distant future, where the looming concerns of today (like climate change and capitalism) have come to pass, and subsistence is commonplace.
Winner of the 2019 Carmel Bird Digital Literary Award
‘Grub steps astonishingly outside of realism to vividly imagine a queer dystopian future of sex, sadness and sly humour.’
Moya Costello, award judge
Grub examines our humanity (and sometimes, lack of it) in extreme circumstances.’ Kalhari Jayaweera
