"Anyone willing to get filthy can also get rich." In this dystopian swamp city, two brothers find that opportunity and exploitation lurk around every corner. But who's smarter- the hordes of people rushing to move in, or the equal horde desperate to leave?

About the Author

Pat Grant is a renowned cartoonist from Melbourne, Australia. His work has appeared in Meanjin, Going Down Swinging, and The Lifted Brow, as well as in magazines such as Artlink, Australia's Surfing Life, and Tracks -- but all of the best stuff comes out in his zine called Lumpen. He is the recipient of an Emerging Writers Grant from the Australia Council for the Arts. His other comics include "The Last Sharehouse" and "Waiting for Something to Happen." His first graphic novel, Blue, was listed as one of the great graphic novels of 2012 by the US culture journal Salon.

Reviews

"The Grot has the makings of a true Australian classic. As absurdly funny as it is disturbingly realistic." - Shaun Tan, Author of The Arrival

"A twisting plot and a seething, filthy world thread together in these hand-made pages, each one a work of art and some so beautiful they take my breath away. The Grot is comics magic in its purest form." - Thi Bui, Author of The Best We Could Do

"A pus-filled adventure full of tricks, likes, and scams. A comic so disgusting that you can SMELL IT!" - Campbell Whyte, Author of Home Time

"Grant develops this grotty world and its particulars steadily and surely, and it becomes impossible not to root for the brothers as they fall prey to con artists and a city without pity." - Library Journal

"A timely quarantine read imagining Australian life in a climate-ravaged world... For a story written long before the COVID-19 pandemic, some of The Grot's ideas feel eerily of the moment." - ABC Arts News
