The Optometrist

The Optometrist

"You've never protested in your life," his wife said. "That's why this is a novelty."
The optometrist was content with his life but when he started a Facebook account called Cash4cats and joined protest group The Friends of Currency Creek, he earned the wrath of both the Greens and a frightening new group, #catlivesmatter. It doesn't help that his new friend, the writer, is treating him like a character in his own life. Will he discern truth from fiction in time to save himself and his family? Will he stop climate change?
The Optometrist is an environmental fiction set in Australia. It is a black comedy about modern life, a dystopian vision of this bleak horrible present, a novelty about a man who just hates cats
