One of the central moral issues of our time is the question of asylum seekers, arguably the most controversial subject in Australia today. In this landmark anthology, twenty-seven of Australia's finest writers have focused their intelligence and creativity on the theme, confirming that the experience of seeking asylum - the journeys of escape from death, starvation, poverty or terror to an imagined paradise - is deeply embedded in our culture and personal histories.

A tour de force of stunning fiction, memoir, poetry and essays. A Country Too Far is by turns thoughtful, fierce, evocative and lyrical, and always extraordinary powerful.
