Hilarious, quirky characters and wicked black humor abound in this fictional account of contemporary rural Australia. An aboriginal woman, her partner, Antman, and their dog, Fleabag, take off on a spirited road trip across Australia, encountering eccentric aunts, six-fingered redheads, and martyrs to the cause of sheep well-being, enjoying along the way all the good things in life—family, laughter, and love. This unique tale offers an incisive and side-splitting look at modern indigenous life and the family and friends that comprise it.

Me, Antman and Fleabag has a lightness of touch, characters you wanted to know more about and ease of integration and exploration of issues related to Indigeneity and Indigenous experience, are all present - and successfully. Me, Antman and Fleabag offers great humour, often wry, often partnered with interpersonal friction, with an understanding of the ever-presence of violence - real, or implied - in many Indigenous lives, or with a cheerfulness of expletive that many a Koori or Murri would be familiar with. This entry, we feel, would work for all readerships. There's potentially great appeal for all in the sly subversion, or inversion, evidenced in many of the characters and situations.
