Andrew Thelander was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1960 and is an award winning author of humorous fiction. His debut novel, LAST BIRDS, was published in 2009 by BeWrite Books UK. With the sad demise of BeWrite, the novel has now been released under the author's original title, DO KANGAROOS BELIEVE IN GOD? His second novel, THE VISIT OF ARIYA IDDHI, is a darkly humorous expose of climate change politics in coal-rich Australia.
A humorous rollicking expose of climate change politics in coal-rich Australia told in the form of a traditional bush yarn as 2 illiterate geriatric farmers score a job in the Prime Minister's climate change quango where spin meets science and nothing is as it seems. The stakes are so high, somebody might get killed.
Misfortune forces a bizarre bunch of misfits to flee into the Australian bush and live like wild kangaroos. The police are hot on their trail. A rollicking good read, full of unexpected twists, that leaves the reader pondering the role of individuals, science and the law in determining how we can best live and interact with nature.
