A poignant coming of age story about cars, boys and growing up too fast. traversing the streets of western sydney, from the NORTH PARRAMATTA maccas carpark to the council pool and Granville charcoal chicken.

.The Incredible Here and Now follows the story of Michael, a gifted writer who lives in the shadow of his older brother, Dom. The biggest guy in the school. Best car in the West. The guy who just can’t help but grab everyone’s attention. When Dom is gone, Michael roams the streets trying to navigate life, friendship, love and family.

“That’s what West is: shiny cars and loud things, people coming, people going-movement. Those who don’t know any better, they come in to the neighbourhood and lock their windows and drive on through, never stopping before they get somewhere else.”

Commissioned from local Parramatta author Felicity Castagna based on her multi award winning novel, The Incredible Here and Now takes the emptiness and fills it with growth.
