Description - Homesickness: Text Classics by Murray Bail

Introduced by Peter Conrad Winner, National Book Council Award for Australian Literature Winner, Age Book of the Year Award It could almost have been their own country- these sections with the gums briefly framed like a traditional oil painting by the slowly passing window. The colours were as brown and parched; that chaff-coloured grass, Ah, this dun-coloured realism. Any minute now the cry of the crow or a cockatoo; but no. Thirteen men and women travel the world on a package tour but wherever they go nothing is as it seems. Challenged by the unexpected, by differences and subtleties, Bail's tourists are in turn repelled and attracted - and all are altered. www.textclassics.com.au
