Thirteen men and women on a world tour, a package of pool-sides, museums, hotels and shops. But no matter where they go - Africa, England, South America, New York or Russia - they find nothing as they expected. Challenged by unexpected propositions, the tourists find themselves repelled.

Winner of the National Book Council Award for Australian Literature and the Age Book of the Year Award

Journal Entry 3 by Sabavana from Mangrove Mountain, New South Wales Australia on Sunday, April 30, 2006
*waves* Hi peggysmum!
OH and I travelled to Canberra this weekend for his sister's wedding (at Googong Dam, Queanbeyan), and after the wedding last night we decided to take a stroll through Civic. Once we managed to find parking, we walked through that mall bit near Garema Place qne we ended up at Starbucks for a Banana Frappe (him) and a Chai Latte (me). We were happily sipping away when I noticed a guy picking up a book, and I commented to OH that I wondered if it was a BC book? Then it dawned on me that this is where you guys meet, and that there's a whole bookshelf here!! I was up out of my seat quicker than you could say 'Free Book', and found this little guy on the shelf.
I was a bit disappointed that I'd already released the book I'd had stashed in my handbag at the carpark, otherwise I could have added to the shelf, but nevermind. Canberra suburbs and the road to Sydney have a few extra books now anyway after my trip!
Thanks peggysmum for this book, it looks great! See you at Picton soon :-)
