Über diesen Titel:
?The seventeen stories here aren?t little gifts; they?re cross cultural treasures. Rarely have I been so captivated by a collection of short fiction.? ?Milwaukee JournalThese moving and insightful stories help us to find our place in a world in which we have all become rootless travelers. Janette Turner Hospital's characters are exiles who share an intimate knowledge of dislocation: from their culture, from their native countries, from themselves. Her intimate stories capture the turning points in her characters? lives from Indian lovers on a last romantic weekend before their arranged marriages to a daughter's welcome home after years of travel. Janette Turner Hospital is a wanderer herself. A native of Australia, she has lived in India, England, Canada, and the United States. She is the author of numerous novels, including Oyster, which is published by Norton and was shortlisted for Australia?s Miles Franklin and National Book Awards.
Inhaltsangabe: From the author of the highly praised novel Oyster, Dislocations is filled with "sensuous, speculative fictions about the experience of dislocation. . . . Stories develop like poems or meditations." (New York Times Book Review) These stories help us to find our place in a world in which we have all become rootless travelers. Janette Turner Hospital's characters are exiles who share an intimate knowledge of dislocation: from their culture, from their native countries, from themselves. Her intimate stories capture the turning points in her character's lives: Indian lovers on a last romantic weekend before their arranged marriages; a daughter's welcome home after years of travel.
