A Long Way from Home, Peter Carey’s 14th novel, uses the story of a light-skinned Indigenous Australian who has been brought up white to address the country’s brutal history of racism. It seems strange at first that Carey – surely Australia’s greatest living novelist, even if he hasn’t dwelled there for decades – has taken so long to get around to the subject. In a recent interview in the Australian, he said that he’d always felt that it was not the place of a white writer to tell this tale. Bachhuber and Irene strike up a friendship over the garden fence, attracting the attention of the small-town gossips, particularly given Bachhuber’s name and teutonophilia – the book is set immediately after the second world war, and most Bachhubers, as Irene notes, would have changed their name to Hubert.

Young Saroo, all of five, penniless and illiterate, does not even know the name of his village and knows little else about where he was from.

Kate Chopin's Short Stories. The Story of an Hour" Summary and Analysis. Kate Chopin's Short Stories. In fact, only the day before she had feared living a long life. Triumphantly, she answers the door and goes downstairs with her arm around Josephine's waist, where Richards awaits. At this moment, Brently Mallard comes in the front door, having been nowhere near the train disaster. To unify the story under a central theme, Chopin both begins and ends with a statement about Louise Mallard's heart trouble, which turns out to have both a physical and a mental component. In the first paragraph of "The Story of an Hour," Chopin uses the term "heart trouble" primarily in a medical sense, but over the course of the story, Mrs. Mallard's presumed frailty seems to be largely a result of psychological repression rather than truly physiological factors.

Friday, June 23, 2017. Lion (A Long Way Home) – Movie vs Book. Lion" is an Australian movie based on a true story. The author of the original book Saroo Brierley is an Indian young man who was adopted by an Australian couple after he lost contact with his family at the age of five. After 20 years, he decides to come back to his home country and look for his family. When I first saw the trailer of "Lion", it was hard, shocking, and heartbreaking. This day was the beginning of a long nightmare. Finding himself alone in this scary city, Saroo had to use his survival skills to find food, to protect himself from dangers, to look every day for a safe place to sleep. He tried repeatedly to come back home, but he didn’t manage to do so with his little experience. So, he decided to accept his new reality and to live on his own.

I just love this book and have read it and its sequel, A Tuesday Thing, more than once. Beautifully written and heart rending bio.
I found this story interesting, sad but also inspiring. A great look into Kate's struggles through her younger years and the innocents of youth. Her next book "A Tuesday Thing" is a must after reading this book.
This book, including its sequel 'A Tuesday thing' are a brilliant read. Thought Kate Shayler gave us an insight as to what it is to be a homes kid and how she got on with her life afterwards.
