Publisher's Summary

A dazzling, compassionate and deeply moving audiobook from one of world literature's rising stars.

A mesmerising literary novel, Questions of Travel charts two very different lives. Laura travels the world before returning to Sydney, where she works for a publisher of travel guides. Ravi dreams of being a tourist until he is driven from Sri Lanka by devastating events. Around these two superbly drawn characters, a double narrative assembles an enthralling array of people, places and stories - from Theo, whose life plays out in the long shadow of the past, to Hana, an Ethiopian woman determined to reinvent herself in Australia.

Award-winning author Michelle de Kretser illuminates travel, work and modern dreams in this brilliant evocation of the way we live now. Questions of Travel is an extraordinary work of imagination - a transformative, very funny and intensely moving novel.

What the Critics Say

''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 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.'' (The Guardian)
''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.'' (The Independent)

    "Wonderful book but .."

    I loved most of this performance. The Laura part was read beautifully so that the essence of the writing was fully realised. But the Ravi part was spoiled for me by the narrator's attempt at Australian accents. I live in Australia and most people do not speak in this very ugly, strident accent. A shame, as apart from this, i would highly recommend this audio book.
