Hell Has Harbour Views

Author(s): Richard Beasley

Australian Fiction

'A fearsome satirical blast' Sunday Age Sydney, 2001: Hugh Walker has it all. He's a successful young lawyer with a beautiful girlfriend and a million dollar office view... So why does he identify more with his resident cockroach than Atticus Finch, his childhood hero?   Once upon a time he was the defender of the abused, the voice of the oppressed. But now he's turning a blind eye to suspect time sheets, championing the powerful against the powerless, and not being entirely honest with his girlfriend. Has his good side deserted him? Is there a way back?   A bitingly satirical novel about one man's search for his soul ... in the most soulless of places.   Praise for Hell Has Harbour Views 'A sharp-clawed comedy' Sydney Morning Herald 'The funniest, most unutterably savage lawyer joke ever' John Birmingham 'Beasley exercises brutal wit in deconstructing modern angst ... His spirited whistleblowing is a tonic' Weekend Australian
