The Bookshop on Jacaranda Street
Meet the Budd-Doyles: a suburban family in shambles, and about to unravel further as Helen Budd-Doyle in one fell swoop destroys her bed, abandons the family home, and buys a second-hand bookshop from a man in a pub - leaving her bewildered junk-collecting husband, Arnold, to sort out his life. But he can't. Enter Gabriel, one of their sons, wreaking havoc as he pushes his father to sell off the accrued junk of a lifetime. Add a little sibling rivalry with his brother Vivian, fresh home and licking his wounds from a life in far north...and watch the fireworks on Jacaranda Street. The Bookshop on Jacaranda Street is a brilliant black comedy by a unique new Australian voice, its world peopled by an extensive cast of misfits - eccentrics, innocents, cranks and pariahs - and driven by an inexorable urge to make order out of chaos.
