Product Details

Praise

The Grot has the makings of a true Australian classic. As absurdly funny as it is disturbingly realistic.” — Shaun Tan, Author of The Arrival

“A twisting plot and a seething, filthy world thread together in these hand-made pages, each one a work of art and some so beautiful they take my breath away. The Grot is comics magic in its purest form.” — Thi Bui, Author of The Best We Could Do

“A pus-filled adventure full of tricks, likes, and scams. A comic so disgusting that you can SMELL IT!” — Campbell Whyte, Author of Home Time

“Grant develops this grotty world and its particulars steadily and surely, and it becomes impossible not to root for the brothers as they fall prey to con artists and a city without pity.” — Library Journal

“A timely quarantine read imagining Australian life in a climate-ravaged world… For a story written long before the COVID-19 pandemic, some of The Grot‘s ideas feel eerily of the moment.” — ABC Arts News
