The Other Side of the World

(2015)
A novel by

 
Winner of the Readings Prize for New Australian Fiction

Shortlisted for the Victorian Premier's Literary Awards


A brave, tender novel about who we want to be...and who we really are.

Cambridge, 1963. Charlotte is struggling. With motherhood, with the changes marriage and parenthood bring, with losing the time and the energy to paint. Her husband, Henry, wants things to be as they were and can't face the thought of another English winter.

A brochure slipped through the letterbox gives him the answer: 'Australia brings out the best in you.' Before she has a chance to realise what it will mean, Charlotte is travelling to the other side of the world.

Arriving in Perth, the southern sun shines a harsh light and slowly reveals that this new life is not the answer either was hoping for. Charlotte is left wondering if there is anywhere she belongs and how far she'll go to find her way home....

A novel of astonishing grace and devastating emotional power that will make your heart ache. If you loved The Hours or The Hand that First Held Mine, you will love The Other Side of the World.

"The story of Charlotte and Henry - the melancholy beauty of its prose and the sharpness of its insights into nostalgia and belonging - has stayed with me for weeks now." (Geordie Williamson)

"Assured, evocative, moving - without question one of the finest Australian novels of 2015." (Martin Shaw)
