Edward Berridge

Author Information
Berridge, Edward

Edward Berridge’s first book, The Lives of The Saints, kickstarted the original wave of 1990s dirty realism. Brutal, unflinching and funny, reviewers were captivated by it and Who Magazine called it pornography. Dog eared and battered copies have been passed from hand to hand for over twenty years. Edward’s next novel is a darkly comic domestic noir confronting divorce and aging. Imagine Big Little Lies written by Michel Houllebecq. As an author, Edward is concerned with sex, how women and men relate to each other and mortality.

Force of Nature

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
Crime Fiction

Five women reluctantly pick up their backpacks and start walking along the muddy track. Only four come out the other side.

The hike through the rugged Giralang Ranges is meant to take the office colleagues out of their air-conditioned comfort zone and teach resilience and team building. At least that is what the corporate retreat website advertises.
