Winner of the National Book Council Award for Australian Literature and the Age Book of the Year Award. Introduction by Peter Conrad. It could almost have been their own country: these sections with the gums briefly framed like a traditional oil painting by the slowly passing window. The colours were as brown and parched; that chaff-coloured grass, Ah, this dun-coloured realism. Any minute now the cry of the crow or a cockatoo; but no. Thirteen men and women travel the world on a package tour but wherever they go nothing is as it seems. Challenged by the unexpected, by differences and subtleties, Bail's tourists are in turn repelled and attracted-and all are altered. Murray Bail was born in Adelaide in 1941. Homesickness was his first novel. Eucalyptus, published in 1998, was the winner of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize and the Miles Franklin Literary Award in 1999. Murray Bail lives in Sydney. Peter Conrad was born in Hobart, taught English literature at Christ Church Oxford from 1973 to 2011, and now lives in London and New York. His books include At Home in Australia and, most recently, Verdi and/or Wagner.
