Smile Number Eight Crispy Chicken: A hilarious and powerful literary satire

The immigration minister has been detained.
Minister for Asylum Deterrence and Foreign Investment, Peter Ruddick, is en route to the remote Pulcherrima Island, the site of his latest privately-run, fast food chain-inspired detention centre. But chaos ensues when Peter misses his connecting flight and finds himself confined to the visa-free zone of the Turgrael airport, without a business lounge in sight.

Stranded in a foreign territory with nothing but McKing's Crispy Chicken burgers to eat and nobody but a bleeding heart liberal, his seat-mate Jeremy Bernard for company, Peter's misunderstandings of Turgistani language and culture result in his arrest on suspicion of terrorism, perversion, and espionage. Peter has always had the power to get away with just about anything, but how will he sweet talk his way out of this one? What if he winds up - like those in his centres - indefinitely detained?
'Hilarious' and 'powerful', Number Eight Crispy Chicken is a carefully researched, funny, and thought-provoking read for fans of the social novels of Tressell, Orwell, Dickens, and Vonnegut.

'Super smart and funny... straddles social commentary and humour perfectly.' - Ava January, author longlisted for the Richell prize

'I have never been transitioned from hatred to empathy more skillfully by an author. It cuts away all artifice and ideology to expose the raw but crispy human in each of us.' - Dr. Joanne Sullivan

'I couldn't stop reading. Peter was really entertaining to watch and I absolutely loved Jeremy... The ending was very intense. Very 1984.' - K.T. Egan, author of All You Hold On To

Number Eight Crispy Chicken is available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Smashwords, and Apple iBooks.
