A stunning debut novel from the winner of the Victorian Premier's Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript

When Mina receives an urgent call from her best friend back in Melbourne, her world is turned upside down. Her reclusive mother, Elaine, has left the house for the first time in twelve years.

Mina drops everything to fly home, only to discover that Elaine will not talk about her sudden return to the world, nor why she's spent so much time hiding from it. Their reunion leaves Mina raking through pieces of their painful past in a bid to uncover the truth.

Both tender and fierce, heartbreaking and funny, Kokomo is a story about how secrets and love have the power to bring us together and tear us apart.

"Kokomo is a beautiful, muscular work - in which Hannan refuses to flinch, to look away, to soften things. Scenes from Kokomo are so uncomfortably familiar - crackling with longing, boredom, love, hurt and hope."
Alice Bishop, author of A Constant Hum 

"An intricate, glittering gem. One of the best debuts in years."
Mark Brandi, author of Wimmera and The Rip

"I can't remember being so excited by a debut novel."
J.P. Pomare, author of Call Me Evie and In The Clearing

"Kokomo is unexpected and incredible storytelling. Crystalline, genuine, heartbreaking and powerful."
Sarah Schmidt, author of See What I Have Done
