The Lot, an abandoned gold mine on the outskirts of Melbourne, plays host to a multiplicity of communities with diverse political histories. Here, the desperate, the weak, and the frustrated are incarcerated and subjugated in a nation they presumed was welcoming and bountiful. In this loveless land a lonely Sri Lankan man and a scarred South Sudanese woman find themselves intertwined in a complex relationship of love, amidst harsh realities, while a family on the outside do what they can to turn things around. In his second book Sam Bunny bravely engages with the problems of asylum-seekers in Australia and compels readers to empathize wholeheartedly with their othered existence. Could the plight of the inhabitants of The Lot be fictitious after all?
