A Long Way from Home is Peter Carey's late style masterpiece; a thrilling high speed story that starts in one that, 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.
