Synopsis: 

From the author of The Ice Walk – Surviving the Soviet Break-up and the New Russia
In her new book, Helen Womack turns herself upside down on a journey of self-discovery to Oz. At the same time, the land Down Under is turned inside out, as Helen explores the continent from a starting point at its desert heart, rather than its coast and cities. This is an Australia that is both familiar and very foreign.
Well-travelled and at home on the road, Helen takes suitcases of various colours on her six odysseys to Oz. The cases contain something for everybody – travel writing, memoir, humour and a little light philosophy. But only the contents of the last suitcase remain.
The Turquoise Suitcase is a song for Australia – a tribute and a “thanks” to all the generous Aussies encountered along the way – as well as a wish that Oz will continue to be the welcoming country of the “fair go” and “no worries mate”.
