Boy Swallows Universe: Plot

As per Harpers Bazaar, “Boy Swallows Universe explores Eli’s upbringing surrounded by drug dealers and thieves, beginning when he is only 12 years old and living amongst violence with his drug-addicted mother and heroin-dealing stepfather.”

Moreover, the synopsis of the story reads, “Brisbane, 1983: A lost father, a mute brother, a mum in jail, a heroin dealer for a stepfather and a notorious crime for a babysitter. It’s not as if Eli’s life isn’t complicated enough already. He’s just trying to follow his heart, learning what it takes to be a good man, but life just keeps throwing obstacles in the way – not least of which is Tytus Broz, legendary Brisbane drug dealer. But if Eli’s life is about to get a whole lot more serious. He’s about to fall in love. And, oh yeah, he has to break into Boggo Road Gaol on Christmas Day, to save his mum.

A story of brotherhood, true love and the most unlikely of friendships.”
