Boy Swallows Universe, the 2018 semi-autobiographical debut novel by Australian writer Trent Dalton, is set to be adapted into an eight-part series by Netflix.

While details are still scant, it is believed Australian actor and filmmaker Joel Edgerton will be one of the show’s producers, and we can expect to see it on screens sometime in 2023, or 2024.

This is huge news for fans of Dalton’s book.
