On Coming Home
Full details for this title
Description of this Electronic Book
Award-winning writer Paula Morris confronts long-standing fears of what it means to return home. Is ambition and adventure being traded for a 'forever home' of commitments and compromises? Will she still belong? And will the belonging impose its own restrictions? Seeking answers in the words of writer exiles, Morris's returning takes us back to her childhood streets and ancestral voyages and on, beyond, to the lost New Zealand worlds of her writing.
