In an all-too-recognisable Melbourne of the near future, the lives of three very different women become intertwined.
Emily is a researcher at the University, carrying out experiments on overcrowding in rats. Free-spirited Amala is an international student feeling the strong tug of home. Roz is a struggling photographer who has visions of the future, although she tries her best to ignore them.
When Roz foresees a terrible tragedy, she is finally driven to act. But can she turn things around once a direction has already been set? As events rapidly escalate, all three women will be pushed to their limits and forced to revisit the choices they have made.
Dark and compelling, Random Acts of Unkindness is a novel about kindness and cruelty. Above all, it explores
the importance of human connection in an increasingly fragmented world.
‘Vivid, exciting and wholly original, Mandoki weaves a tale of obsession, compassion and choosing how to live with each other.’ — Margaret Bearman
