“A Long Way from Home is a major work of fiction by the writer who will probably be regarded, in a hundred years, as the leading Australian novelist from the early part of the twenty-first century.” Paul Giles, Australian Book Review


“A domes­tic drama on wheels, an inquiry into the metaphysics of race… A Long Way From Home reminds us that great novels are not ideological — neither exploitative nor excessively well-meaning — but tough-minded, complex admissions of failure, guilt and confusion.” Georgie Williamson, The Australian


“Of all the novels I’ve read by two-time Booker winner Peter Carey, this one is the best… Fast-paced, utterly engaging and full of trademark Carey eccentrics … a comic novel which also reveals the slow dawning of Australia’s recognition of its real history.” Lisa Hill, ANZ LitLovers LitBlog
