Sent to boarding school at a young age, Jack Muir decided he’s a survivor. He gets by with a quick wit and fast mouth. Others aren’t so lucky. The Age called Jon Doust “a writer with a distinctive voice” while The West Australian said the book was “a hilarious, angry and sympathetic portrait of boys behaving badly.
Boy on a Wire was long listed for the Miles Franklin Award in 2010.

Jon Doust was born in Bridgetown and has had diverse careers from banking to comedy.
His second novel – To the Highlands – is due for release in August 2012.

Book your seat at the Library – space is limited so book now to avoide disappointment.
