"A group of Australian tourists permanently traipsing through the museums of their own obsessions...a visual writer with great understanding of sensual man." - Patrick White.
Thirteen men and women on a package tour travel the world, visiting museums, hotels and shops.
They are like tourists anywhere, except that wherever they go - Africa, England, South America, New York or Russia - they find nothing as it seems.
Challenged by unexpected propositions, differences and subtleties of life and history, Bail's tourists are in turn repelled, attracted, altered.
Homesickness is one of the most distinctive and original Australian novels of our time.
