Author(s): Ali MC
So begins a decade-long descent into worlds far removed from the comfort of middle-class Australia. Beginning with an acid-fuelled night in the Kimberley, the first decade of the 21st century sees Ali MC travelling the globe in an attempt to understand the forgotten corners of the world. Although he is beaten and shot at along the way, Ali encounters some of the most enduring stories the so-called Third World can produce. The Eyeball End steps away from the safety net of well-worn travel guides, taking the reader on a unique and challenging journey into the human condition.
