High Praise and Exciting News for The Book of Dirt

Official publication week for The Book of Dirt has now come and gone, and what a week it was! News came in on Publication Day (August 28) that the book has already gone into reprint. Meanwhile, there were a couple of amazing reviews from Readings Monthly (“Extraordinary”) and The Saturday Paper (“A major book”) which you can check out here!

The Book of Dirt is now available in all good book stores across Australia.

A Return To The Old Stompin’ Ground!

So this happened yesterday. Hothouse Studios in St Kilda with all-round legend Craig Harnath. Can’t tell you why just yet. Only know that it is for something extremely fun and silly. Which, obviously, is not The Book of Dirt: The Musical.

Bram and Craig ready to make some noise at Hothouse (actually talking shit for 2 hours, recording for about 20 minutes)..

The Book of Dirt Trailers!

With just over a fortnight to go before The Book Of Dirt hits the shelves, now’s the time to check out the first couple of trailers in the series.

The Book of Dirt: Jakub and Daša 

Bram’s grandparents, Jakub and Daša, took their stories to the grave. It was only years after they died that Bram happened upon a newspaper article purporting to tell Jakub’s extraordinary story and set him on the search to discover the truth. So began the eight year quest to uncover and reimagine what lay beneath the silence.

The Book of Dirt: A Grandson’s Search

A walk through the abandoned spaces of Theresienstadt and Birkenau. During his search, Bram was granted unprecedented access into the usually off-limits abandoned spaces of Theresienstadt. Then, when visiting Birkenau, he found his way into a closed off subcamp, the same place where Jakub had been imprisoned seventy years beforehand.

With just over a month to go before the release of Bram’s debut novel, The Book of Dirt, he thought it might be time to drive a cyber-stake into this little corner of the web and make it his home. Feel free to wander around. Build a campsite. Make a fire. Burn down the establishment.
