Description

These 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.
