Set in Sydney's working-class suburbs, No More Boats tells of a family whose lives collide with a refugee crisis known as the Tampa Affair, when over 400 hundred refugees were left stranded fifteen miles off the Australian coast. The story revolves around Antonio, an Italian immigrant, his wife Rose, and their two children, Nico and Claire. After a work-related accident forces him into early retirement Antonio's mind begins to fragment. Manipulated by the media and made vulnerable by his feeling of irrelevance, Antonio commits an act that puts him in the centre of a heated immigrant debate.
Industry Reviews
"No More Boats is a striking work of suburban Australian realism."-Georgia Delaney, Readings
"...illuminating and...thought-provoking."
"No More Boats offers us a way of understanding the contradiction of one migrant turning against others. This is an important book." -- Donata Carrazza * Australian Book Review *
"No More Boats is a book that should be read slowly and considerately, because every detail is significant. It's an engaging and gripping second novel from Castagna."
"Through the lens of a fictional suburban family, Castagna has created a novel that is both memorable and vital in reminding us to consider where we come from."
"[C]ompelling yet thoughtful."
