Author(s): Alasdair Duncan
Dark, hedonistic and sometimes violent, Metro tells the story of six months in the life of university student Liam Kelly. When his girlfriend Sara leaves Australia to backpack around Europe, Liam's friends expect him to play up, and he does – but in a way that no-one could imagine. As well as the drinking, drugging and partying, he is hiding a secret homosexual life from his middle-class friends.
With a deft, satirical touch, Duncan captures the wealthy, directionless Gen-Y tribe, living in a world where nobody says no and sexual preferences change as often as the latest hip drink.
