SATAN'S LITTLE HELPERS effortlessly captures the 1950s and 1960s in suburban Australia. Catholics will laugh and cry, non-Catholics will laugh and laugh. Anyone who grew up in this period will share the laughs and exasperation, will envy and be touched by the teenage love story. An engaging plot with surprising twists and turns and all the horrors of school, families, teenage and first love ... and all the laughs.
With some generous assistance from the vibrant and unpredictable Megan, Simon Hickey faces the challenges and social turmoil of the 1960's. As the story unfolds, Catholic culture, a love affair, and the threat of being shipped off to Vietnam, combine to provide all the elements of a best seller. Humour, pathos, sexual awakenings, tragedies and a surprise or two... There is a -real feeling of `being there' in this story. Living History."
