Laura travels the world before returning to Sydney, where she works for a publisher of travel guides. Ravi dreams of being a tourist until he is driven from Sri Lanka by devastating events. An enthralling array of people, places and stories surround these superbly drawn characters - from Theo, whose life plays out in the long shadow of the past, to Hana, an Ethiopian woman determined to reinvent herself.

Questions of Travel is infused with wit, imagination, uncanny common sense and a deep understanding of what makes us tick.

About the Author:

Michelle de Kretser was born in Sri Lanka and emigrated to Australia when she was 14. She was educated in Melbourne and Paris.

She lives in Sydney.

Review:

This is a novel unlike any other I have read... It is not really possible to describe, in a short space, the originality and depth of this long and beautifully crafted book. -- A.S. Byatt * The Guardian * Ambitious and entertaining... Questions of Travel should ensure her place as a serious international novelist of the first rank. * The Economist * Sweeping and virtuosic... An outstanding novel. -- Stephanie Cross * Daily Mail * Novel by novel, the Sri Lankan-born Australian has emerged as one of the most fiercely intelligent voices in fiction today. This new work, her most ambitious yet, makes globalisation and its discontents the focus of a multi-faceted story that unites grandeur and intimacy. -- Boyd Tonkin * The Independent * An artful meditation on movement and migration. * The Times Literary Supplement * Man Booker-longlisted de Kretser's precisely written novel is concerned with tourists, refugees and the complexities of immigration... a nuanced and ambivalent look at the crassness of tourism. * The Sunday Times * This truly is a book for our times. * Irish Times *
