The eagerly awaited release of The Grass is Always Browner has happened today. This speculative fiction novel is a unique story about Australia in the future.
Australia has four times more land area than neighbouring Bhakaria, with only one tenth of the population. Knox stretches forward the raw elements of Australian civilisation – territory, climate and resources – to 250 years in the future, relating them to the populations of the two nations.
“Martin Knox is the type of writer who knows how to tell a wonderful story and pose thought-provoking questions about life and the future. In his book The Grass is Always Browner, Knox has managed to craft a political thriller, a romance and an allegorical tale of one man’s prophetic journey towards enlightenment, all within the umbrella of a deeply satisfying work of speculative fiction. This is a novel to savour and Martin Knox is a writer to watch.” – Dr. Veny Armanno, Senior Lecturer in Writing at the University of Queensland, author of seven critically acclaimed novels and prize-winner of Qld Premier’s Literary Award for Best Fiction with Volcano in 2002.
