Love and Other U-Turns

Published to rave reviews in 2010 by Allen + Unwin:
“An engaging travel memoir… Eat, Pray, Love meets Tim Winton and Mischkulnig’s Smalltown…Louisa and Jim are road warriors, sleeping in swags, eschewing showers and just about every other comfort for the experience of living truly in the moment…Deasey is able to evoke the bain-marie at the truck stop as evocatively as the chance sighting of whales in the Great Australian Bight.”

-Toni Whitmont, Bookseller and Publisher
