"Shooting a book in Oz was an interesting experience compared to London or New York," Dalton told BuzzFeed.

"Australia (despite this being blindingly obvious to anyone who has ever looked at a map) is surprisingly huge when you get there. That’s one giant country!"

"Also (and I’d be lynched at home for saying this) Australia is distinctly less shit and run down than London."

"It’s pretty damned clean and well ordered which made my job that much harder."

"Saying that, Melbourne was easily the most graffitied city I’ve ever visited."

"Darwin had a pleasing weirdness about it which I really dug…does the the NT Times only publish stories about Crocs?!?!"

So, in conclusion, Australia is not as shit as the UK. You probably knew that already right?!
