“There’s a rat in your brain in stilettos, pacing back and forth called Miles. There is no delineation between you and the cosmos! No barrier! No skin! No safety! Any more.”
Kimberly is a force of nature. Cruel and unpredictable, she cuts a trail of destruction through our bland world – leaving no corporate wellness seminar or improv class unscathed. But then Kimberly meets Miles, and smashes face-first into a love that’s even more violent than her.
From cult comic sensation, Nick Coyle (The Queen of Wolves, ABC’s Sarah’s Channel), The Feather in the Web is a lacerating satire of mainstream culture that revels in all the magnificent, awful parts of ourselves we’ve learned to squash right down.
“Nick Coyle leads you into a mad tunnel of laughs, that has jokes, slapstick, silliness and satire… Then he hits you where it hurts.” – Sydney Morning Herald
★★★★ “Wickedly funny… An unlikely celebration of those who exist outside the box.” – Time Out
