After living abroad for years, novelist Peter Carey returns home to Sydney and attempts to capture its character with the help of his old friends, drawing the reader into a wild and wonderful journey of discovery and rediscovery as bracing as the southerly buster that sometimes batters Sydney's shores. Famous sights such as Bondi Beach, the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and the Blue Mountains all take on a strange new intensity when exposed to the penetrating gaze of the author and his friends.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is a fabulously idiosyncratic small masterpiece ... it's so good it takes your breath away' Carmen Callil, The Times 'This is a hymn of praise to Sydney and to its people. A little book, but an incredibly rich one' Scotland on Sunday 'It is a vintage performance. He makes you want to get on the next Qantas flight out of Heathrow' Evening Standard 'The writer in him gets truly hooked, and so does the reader ... a book of fierce colour and shape' New York Times
