'Golden Boys has a line-by line brilliance that is startling … [Hartnett] is one of Australia’s most penetrating analysts of the travail and turmoil of families, especially as witnessed and suffered by the young.'
The Weekend Australian

Sonya Hartnett’s new novel for adults is an unflinching and utterly compelling work.

With their father, there’s always a catch … Colt Jenson and his younger brother Bastian have moved to a new, working-class suburb. The Jensons are different. Their father, Rex, showers them with gifts – toys, bikes, all that glitters most – and makes them the envy of the neighbourhood. To Freya Kiley and the other local kids, the Jensons are a family from a magazine, and Rex a hero – successful, attentive, attractive, always there to lend a hand. But to Colt he’s an impossible figure in a different way: unbearable, suffocating. Has Colt got Rex wrong, or has he seen something in his father that will destroy their fragile new lives?

'Succinct and vivid.'
The Age

'A fine portrait of the charming predator.'
The West Australian

'An absorbing, fiercely elegant and tangibly believable novel that raises questions about our responsibility to bear witness – and details the complex obstacles to doing so.'
The Australian Book Review
