Before I was an author I...

was delusionally confident.

 

Down the Hume was inspired by…

The shadow part of myself.

 

In three words Down the Hume is…

Queer suburban noir.

 

My favourite place to write is…

This desk I found on the street.

 

When I’m not writing I

am invisible.

  • Down the Hume - Peter Polites

    A confronting and powerful novel from an exciting new voice - for lovers of Christos Tsiolkas (LOADED) and Luke Davies (CANDY).
