A Long Way From Home

Author(s): Peter Carey

Fiction

Irene Bobs loves fast driving. Her husband is the best car salesman in rural south eastern Australia. Together they embark upon the Redex Trial, a brutal car race around the continent, over roads no car can ever quite survive. Set during the 1950s in the dying embers of the British Empire, A Long Way from Home is a thrilling high-speed story, illuminating a country's relationship with its own ancient culture, and the love made and hurt caused along the way.
