Indian Pacific and other travels
‘For over an hour, I watched Australia go by. I didn’t want Kath to come knocking, I didn’t want breakfast. Only to stay there, undisturbed, with the red earth.”
Indian Pacific, the title story of this short collection of fiction and non-fiction, is a love letter to travel, trains and Australia. The Indian Pacific is one of the most celebrated trains in the world and it celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2020. To mark this, Irish novelist Denyse Woods has republished her award-winning story set on the iconic train. Enjoy this journey from Sydney to Perth; this gentle trundle across the outback.
This collection also includes Woods’ prize-winning story, Wallpaper, and other travel pieces that will take you to the desert, Key West, and the snowy hills of Bormio.
