The Viewing Platform by Ian Wedde
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


New Zealand's spectacular scenic views are used in this bitingly satirical novel as launching platforms for the catastrophic road trip by a team of dysfunctional cultural tourism consultants. They disappear, they go berserk, they self-destruct, they end up in porn sties and sit-down ablution facilities for the elderly. It's beauty, purity, authenticity, adventure and hospitality that destroy the team. Combining satire, essay and road-trip storyline, The Viewing Platform also asks the question: where are we when we're at home? In the sex-bandit underworld of Bangladesh ('get here before the tourists do'), amid the marketable beauties of New Zealand's iconic landscapes, on, in the demand-side danger and supply-side safety of adventure tourism, in an absolutely pure place, home goes terribly wrong.
