    Suspended schoolteacher (‘chalk and talker’) and Bacchus Marsh resident Willie Bachuber is smitten when the diminutive yet perfect couple, Mr and Mrs Titch Bobbs, move next door. Titch has one desire – to own the Ford franchise for Bacchus Marsh – but Mrs Bobs knows the future is with Holden (ironic given Holden has no future in this country now). She swings the deal and the couple decide to launch their new venture by entering the famous round-Australia endurance race, the Redex Trial. The Bobs will drive, and Willie is co-opted to navigate. And so this odd trio embark on a wild ride around the country, where they encounter, among other things, Willie’s past and Australia’s future. Carey’s use of language and vernacular shine, making A Long Way from Home an immensely enjoyable read.
