George Alexander


As an insider to Australia’s upwardly-spiralling art world, George Alexander reveals a darker side of contemporary Australia in a tale of menacing racial conspiracies. Slow Burn is a crackling novel, framed within the crime and corruption genre.

Slow Burn opens, at the smouldering butt-end of the twentieth century, where an organisation called ‘The Cleaners’ is making threats, days before the Australia Day holiday. An Aboriginal protester was murdered the year before. Lost in the emotional quicksand of marital breakup, journalist Alex Tolman finds himself caught up in the events, all the while inextricably linked to a cannibalstic art world.

Written with page-turning energy Slow Burn casts a sharp light on contemporary Australia, as it delves into messy partnerships of all kinds: between blackfella and whitefella worlds, between men and women, between art and business, between truth and news, and even between the living and the dead.
