About Summer of the Aliens

One of Australia’s most legendary dramatists, Louis Nowra is synonymous with the beating heart of Kings Cross.

It’s 1962, and Lewis is an average fourteen-year-old on the outskirts of working-class Melbourne. In the blistering heat of summer he forages for shell casings at the rifle range, sneaks into sci-fi double features, and tries to understand how the hell you talk to girls.

Then, lights start flashing in the night sky. The adults start acting weird. And strangers arrive from distant lands.

Set against the backdrop of the Cuban missile crisis, Summer of the Aliens is a sun-soaked coming-of-age classic all about class, closed doors and global catastrophes of galactic proportions.
