" Macindoe succeeds in creating a lively comedy. Short, action-packed chapters populated with quirky characters propel the story forward. Aussies may further glean political innuendoes from references to Bert’s goldfish that are named after prime ministers."

Synopsis

Before Rupert Murdoch married Jerry Hall and Tony Abbott was Prime Minister of Australia, enterprising shoe salesman Bert Smith got an offer he couldn’t refuse—to live the high life in Melbourne’s premier suburb—Toorak!

There was a catch, however…

He had to tell everyone within cooee that he was a prince—a Toorak prince!

And that’s when all the fun began for Bert!


Writing from her experience growing up in Toorak, Rosemary Macindoe blends a mélange of humour, satire and with a dash of poignancy in "The Toorak Jackpot". This modern fable, inspired by Dickens' "Great Expectations" explores what it means to be truly wealthy.
