Peter Carey
A Long Way From Home

Join award winning Australian author Peter Carey to celebrate his latest masterpiece, A Long Way From Home, two days before its official UK publication. A thrilling high speed story set in the 1950s in the embers of the British Empire, 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.
