30 Days in Sydney: A Wildly Distorted Account

Peter Carey hits a good number of solid beats in his 30 Days in Sydney: A Wildly Distorted Account.  The book is written from Carey’s perspective as an expat Australian (he now lives in New York) so it is has the detached yet attached feel of the writer both at home with his people and land and yet alienated.

This perch enables Carey to visit old friends and landscapes and make new connections and interpretations about the Australian past, present and future. 

As a travel book in this genre, from this angle, Carey delivers what he promises as a writer.
