AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Tom and Zoe Drewe, like thousands of others, are "going around Australia". Their journey, begun in certainty and on their terms, takes on its own momentum and compulsions, until they are driven as much as driving, and increasingly acted upon by the power and histories of the land whose surface they cross. Compelling, moving, disturbing, this important and timely novel confronts the dark side of the Australian psyche, exploring what it means to be an Australian, and the nature of belonging.

Reconfiguring Australia's Literary Canon : Antipodean Cultural Tectonics Salhia Ben-Messahel , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: Commonwealth , Autumn vol. 34 no. 1 2011; (p. 77-91)
'This paper shows how an Australian community imagined by the European continent has evolved to become more inclusive of otherness, be it in the form of non-Anglo-Australian cultures, Australian regional cultures, or a significant Indigenous culture intimately linked to the land. In this process, which is comparable to tectonic shifts, some Australian authors have attempted, within a 21st-century global village, to map intercultural spaces that reveal a pervasive sense of emptiness and the uncanny.'
