Beschreibung

When a typographical error causes Australia to buy 150 submarines instead of 15, major consequences follow. While the mistake nearly bankrupts the economy, it also turns the country into a naval superpower. The nation is outraged and there is a seismic change in the political landscape. The Greens are swept into government with an overwhelming majority and Bob Brown becomes President of Australia, unopposed. This political satire is fast moving and a great story, a lot of it being set in the pristine, but threatened, Tarkine rainforest. Readers from the entire world will enjoy this humorous, yet very intelligent, chronicle of events in Australia and, indeed the world, making it a better place.

Michael Nicholson was born in 1954 in Melbourne, Australia. He attended Scotch College, where he pursued an interest in writing as the Editor of the school's magazine, Satura. Since then, he has explored various careers including those in publishing, television, art, animation and filmmaking. Michael's interest in the arts has translated to success in both writing and filmmaking; he has six other published works and worked on 'Rubbery Figures,' the satirical political puppets, on national television for several years in the 1980s, as a writer, director, animator and editor. Michael married his wife in 2002, and they have a daughter together. When he's not writing or filmmaking, Michael enjoys spending time with his family, gardening and pursuing photography.
