9780140080759: Home and Away
From Publishers Weekly:

In this collection of short stories, Australian writersincluding Elizabeth Jolley, Frank Moorhouse and Andrew Taylorexplore the theme of travel and the sensibility of Australians who venture away from home. Croswell, a Sydney writer and literary agent, notes in her introduction that "busy, air conditioned airports and 'international' hotels can provide just as fruitful a source of the travel experience as vistas of snow, wastelands of desert and the threatening landscape of uncharted territories." Moorhouse's "The New York Bell Captain" is a comic horror story about the exaggerated self-consciousness of a tourist in Manhattan. In Taylor's "The Absolutely Ordinary Family," a solitary woman observes a vacationing family and realizes that she will always watch the drama of other people's lives from the outside. In "The Fellow Passenger," Jolley reveals the inner voyage of a middle-aged doctor on a cruise. Unfortunately, not all the tales here are as entertaining and perceptive as these threemost of the the other journeys in this volume are incomplete.
