Trent Dalton's Boy Swallows Universe is coming to TV

After the astounding critical and commerical success of Trent Dalton's Boy Swallows Universe, Anonymous ContentChapter OneHopscotch Features and Joel Edgerton (Boy Erased) are teaming up to produce an international TV drama adaptation. 

Dalton’s lauded debut novel, inspired by his own complicated youth, is a coming-of-age story set in Brisbane’s violent working-class suburban fringe in the 1980s. 

The book has sold more than 160,000 copies in Australia since its publication in July last year and has taken out all of the biggest industry awards, including being longlisted for the Miles Franklin just yesterday.

The novel is scheduled to be published across the US and UK in the coming year.
