"Death in Brunswick" is a darkly comedic novel written by Boyd Oxlade, an Australian author. Published in 1987, the story is set in the suburb of Brunswick in Melbourne, Australia, and revolves around the misadventures of a young man named Carl Fitzgerald.

In the novel, Carl finds himself working at an abattoir (a slaughterhouse) after a series of unfortunate events. He becomes entangled in a love affair with a waitress named Sophie, navigates the complexities of his workplace, and becomes involved in a world of crime, all while dealing with the absurdities of life.

"Death in Brunswick" is known for its sharp wit, gritty humor, and exploration of the darker aspects of life. The novel captures the essence of urban life in Australia and offers a satirical commentary on relationships, work, and the human condition. Oxlade's writing style combines humor and tragedy, creating a compelling narrative that resonates with readers.

In addition to the novel, "Death in Brunswick" was adapted into a film in 1990, directed by John Ruane, starring Sam Neill as Carl Fitzgerald. The film retained the dark humor and quirky charm of the novel, further popularizing the story and its unique blend of comedy and drama.
