Abstract:

Irene Bobs loves fast driving. Her husband is the best car salesman in rural south eastern Australia. Together with Willie, their lanky navigator, they embark upon the Redex Trial, a brutal race around the continent, over roads no car will ever quite survive. A long way from home is Peter Carey's thrilling high-speed story that starts in one way, then takes you to another place altogether. Set in the 1950s in the embers of the British Empire, painting a picture of Queen and subject, black, white and those in between, A long way from home illustrates how the possession of an ancient culture spirals through history - and the love made and hurt caused along the way.
