Book Review | Rohan Wilson’s Daughter of Bad Times

Rohan Wilson

What a compelling read. Rohan Wilson’s DAUGHTER OF BAD TIMES (2019) from @AllenandUnwin is a dystopian thriller set in a not so distant future when immigration detention centers are serving as manufacturing plants and exploiting free labor. A brutal and unwavering comment on global warming, corruption, and disregard for human life.


Rohan Wilson previously released THE ROVING PARTY and is the winner of MANY Australian prizes, including the highly regarded VICTORIAN PREMIER’S LITERARY AWARD & THE AUSTRALIAN LITERARY PRIZE.


“Rin Braden is ready to give up on life after the heartbreaking death of her lover Yamaan and the everyday dread of working for her mother’s corrupt private prison company. But through a miracle, Yamaan has survived. He turns up in an immigration detention facility in Australia, trading his labor for a supposedly safe place to live. This is no ordinary facility, its Eaglehawk MTC, a manufactory builds by her mother’s company to exploit the flood of environmental refugees. Now Run must find a way to free Yamaan before the ghosts of her past and a string of bad choices catch up with them both.”
