    1 thought on “Geography”

    1. Geography is an intense, absorbing novel, an erotic, emotive narrative which explores the point at which passion becomes obsession. Whilst travelling through India, Catherine tells her newfound friend and travelling companion Ruby the story of her intense love affair with a man named Michael. Thus the story moves between the past and present, drawing connections between the two in its exploration of friendship, love, desire and the search for a sense of place.Catherine’s travels in India are g [...]

    2. For a book sold at Hares & Hyenas (a gay and lesbian bookshop in Melbourne), there was an awful lot of heterosexual sex/obsession in this book. Don't get me wrong. I am sure people who like het sex would find this book very interesting but as a lesbian reader after lesbian literature from a gay and lesbian bookshop, I was a bit disappointed that there was so much het sex in the book which I bought, and it continued almost right up until the end. From my understanding, the author Sophie Cunni [...]

    3. I borrowed this book almost by chance, after browsing the "English Language" section at my local library (I'm Italian). Little did I know that I would find a book that described the love story I lived with an English guy in the 90's (who, funnily enough, is now living in Australia). This book describes exactly the pain, the uncertainty, the waiting, the sudden bursts of passion, followed by the disappointment, of a long distance relationship. I don't know if the author really experienced such a [...]

    4. Read this because I am interested in Meanjin and its fate (rumours that it is about to become online-only, and apparently this will kill it) and have been reading about Cunningham’s editorship in particular. She is about to leave at the end of the year, so there have been a lot of comments and reflections on her time as editor, most quite positive and flattering. Made me curious to see what her novel/s were like. Imagined they would be quite literary and thoughtful.This was very light reading [...]

    5. What a load of rubbish. A narcissist talks about her sex and travel addiction in some kind of soft porn story thinly veiled as travel writing. Don't even get me started on the ending! The critics of Eat, Love, Pray would have a field day with this one but they might re-think what they consider to be self gratifying fiction. Made a train trip go a bit faster - but I may have lost a few brain cells in the process. Wish there was a half star option blah.

    6. Cunningham writes well and this book is full of rather predictable drama and titillating sex. She attempts to blend the drama of 90's news events into the drama of the clearly failed nature of her non-relationship and as a reader, I can't manage to feel very sorry for her or even empathize. I'd read a 2nd novel only if it swore off discussing relationships.

    7. Entertaining enough, a story of love, obsession, identity and place. Quick and easy to read, a good one for the beach or similar.
