Reviews

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 *
