This week, we’re giving away three copies of The Lebs – a confronting new novel from The Sydney Morning Herald’s Best Young Novelist winner, Michael Mohammed Ahmad.
Leb is of course short for ‘Lebanese’ and this story follows Bani Adam – who thinks his school, Punchbowl Boys, is the arse end of the earth.
Though he's a Leb and they control the school, Bani feels at odds with the other students, who just don't seem to care. He is a romantic in a sea of hypermasculinity. Bani must come to terms with his place in this hostile, hopeless world, while dreaming of so much more.
“In its vibrancy, its warty candour and willingness to engage with the messy business of people falling out of their known worlds without knowing where to go next, The Lebs is a strong and resonant novel that deserves to be widely read.” – Weekend Australian
