Eliza travels to Sydney to deal with the estate of her Aunt Dodge, and finds Maxine, a hitherto unknown cousin, occupying Dodge's apartment. When legal complications derail plans to live it up on their inheritance, the women's lives become consumed by absurd attempts to deal with Australian tax law, as well their own mounting boredom and squalor. The most astonishing debut novel of the decade, Dodge Rose calls to mind Henry Green in its skewed use of colloquial speech, James Joyce in its love of inventories, and William Gaddis in its virtuoso lampooning of law, high finance, and national myth.

Review:

"There will be few novels released this year as original, daring and difficult as Dodge Rose." -Sydney Morning Herald

"Australian writer Jack Cox’s frisky and disorienting debut Dodge Rose is part legal satire and part mash note to James Joyce. . . . Mr. Cox has a Joycean love of colloquialisms, puns and lists, and he modulates between drastically different registers of speech...[it's a] brilliant showoff of a book... for a reader open to linguistic spectacle, it’s a memorable performance." -Wall Street Journal

"Cox is a beautiful writer." - The Saturday Paper

"It is an original, at times brilliant work that in its avoidance of cliche, its restorative effect on language, actually does recall Beckett." -The Guardian

"Cox has created in Max one of the most extraordinary narrative voices I’ve read this year." -The National
