Bon and LesleyShaun Prescott
When a spreading fire in the mountains stops his train just outside an almost abandoned town, Bon looks out the window and does what he's always imagined he might - he steps out of his life without looking back. There, he falls into the company of two young brothers, Steven and Jack Grady, both drawn like moths to the chaos of the coming days, and Lesley, an enigmatic fellow escapee from the city. Together they coalesce into a makeshift family unit, fuelled by cheap liquor and fried food, and bound by a deep and incomprehensible love. Taking in a world of peculiar anarchies and regulations, of secret roads and portals that lurk beneath the country's failing design, Bon and Lesley is an urgent, surreal dispatch from a country intimately familiar with catastrophe.
