A Long Way From Home by Peter Carey

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 Careys late style masterpiece; a 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, this brilliantly vivid novel illustrates how the possession of an ancient culture spirals through history - and the love made and hurt caused along the way.

When You're a Long, Long Way From Home

Aptly, the first sketch of the track was laid down by Paavo and Spencer in a Melbourne hotel room - a very, very long way from home. Filled with totally amazing, high moments, but also lonely moments in hotel rooms far away from home. We'd both been travelling for hours feeling somewhat lost and lonely and ended up spending the day together talking about it all. After signing my music with Anjunabeats in , our musical and personal relationship deepened. Fans need not wait long for more. Both artists have packed schedules for the remainder of the year.

Well she got herself a shovel Cuz she can't afford the fare And she dug a hole to China.

She tried to make some honest dough But nobody pays her She left her job uptown To be a Hollywood grazer Nobody seems to care Oh baby don't you know that it's burnin' While the whole damn world is turnin' Oh my baby, yeah my baby she's learnin' While the whole damn world is turnin' Oh, don't you know that she's learnin' Ah, yeah! Oh don't you know that heaven is burnin' While the whole damn world is turnin' She knows what she wants She knows what she needs And she don't give a damn She's a long, long way from home From home Every day that passes She cashes in and dances A Shanghai slinger With dreams of bein' a singer A Hong Kong looker A potential hooker She don't need no thrill She's got to pay the bills Nobody told her that it's cold out there Livin' in the streets of L.

W riters are by nature chameleons, with each new character a new disguise to take on, a fresh skin to inhabit. The novel is told in alternating first-person voices. Initially, we meet the petite Irene Bobs, a spunkily irrepressible young woman married to the equally diminutive Titch. Titch is genial, slightly useless and lives in fear of his domineering father, Dan. Titch dreams of running the local Ford dealership; after yet another stab in the back from his father, he has to make do with being the Bacchus Marsh representative of General Motors Holden.

Alfred A. If the title conjures polite restraint, the novel itself is reliably free-flowing. And why not? The land may be a character, but the speaking voices belong to Irene and Willie, the unlikely driver and her navigator. That was not how I did things, by being defeated at the start. Willie is the oft-mentioned German bachelor of Bacchus Marsh, a disgraced teacher suspended for holding a student out of a second-story window after being taunted with racial remarks. Raised by a Lutheran pastor in Adelaide, Willie is unaware of the complexity of his heritage.
