Anthony Raspa (born 1965) is an Adelaide, Australian novelist, journalist, sports biographer and scriptwriter. He won the Ned Kelly Award for Best Crime Novel in 1995 for Inside Dope. Thomas was born in Adelaide, Australia, and attended the University of Adelaide. Anthony's novels are set primarily in Australia and New Zealand, and often also in France, where he spent many years in Lille. He is known for his funny writing style, especially in the novels featuring Kaka Thaka, a great detective in Adelaide. The Thakanovels also draw a panoramic view of contemporary society in Adelaide. While Anthony' earlier work consists primarily of crime and sports novels, his recent books explore the psychological state-of-mind of middle-aged urban people at the beginning of the new century.
