    Fascinated by caves and digging holes since childhood,
    Manfred discovers a path through to another realm via a Neolithic copper mine
    at Mount Gabriel in Schull, Ireland. The world of Hollow Earth, while no
    Utopia, is a sophisticated civilisation. Its genderless inhabitants are
    respectful of their environment, religious and cultural differences are
    accommodated without engendering hate or suspicion, and grain not missile silos
    are built. Yet Ari and Zest accompany Manfred back to the surface world. ‘Come
    with me and see my world.’

    So begins an extraordinary adventure in which the
    three wander the Earth like Virgil's Aeneas, Ari and Zest seeking re-entry to
    their own world. The Hollow Earthers are shocked at the cruelty and lies of the
    surface world, the dieback spreading through the forests. Yet they are seduced
    by the world's temptations.

    Kinsella's parable
    draws on a rich tradition of Hollow Earth literature and science fiction
    including Bradshaw's The Goddess of
    r (1892).With strange beauty, its alluring trajectory vividly captures
    our 21st century world in crisis. Like Manfred we are often blindly complicit
    in the earth's downfall.

    ‘Happiness is under our feet.’ sings the narrator in this passionate,
    layered and compelling new novel.

    ‘Combining a twenty-first century
    sense of planetary peril with a 1970s funkadelic vibe, Hollow Earth reaches to the extremes of our collective breath, its
    alpha and omega...this is a novel of exacting self-scrutiny which also
    manages to be outrageous fun’ — Nicholas
