‘Challenging and engaging, The Bogan Delusion pushes readers out of their comfort zone. Nichols possesses one of the best bullshit detectors around.’
Sophie Cunningham

Nothing defies cultured Australia's sense of itself more than the bogan - that boorish, racist, drunken, sexist, bethonged, Barnesy-loving embarrassment out there in the back blocks.

Part travelogue, part social critique, The Bogan Delusion explores the cultural and social landscape of Australia in 2011. It reveals, with searing analysis and sharp wit, that the bogan so widely feared is nothing more than a bogey: a framework for invisible borders and a convenient excuse for many to never venture beyond the cafe-lined cocoon of the inner city.
