Review

"In Janet Clare's impressive debut, Time Is the Longest Distance, Lilly, a restless New Yorker, is summoned by her mother back to Los Angeles to discover she's in fact the product of a secret fling her mother once had with a rugged Australian. Following her mother's footsteps to the Antipodes, Lilly tracks down her mercurial birth father and lights upon more than she could have imagined. In propulsive, exacting strokes, Clare deftly moves us through a time out of time in a faraway place. A taut, compelling adventure, exploring little known landscapes, and the depth and breadth of a woman's yearning." David Francis, author of Stray Dog Winter, Wedding Bush Road, Agapanthus Tango

"How could you not love a novel set against the Australian outback? About fierce love, endless longing, ravenous desire, and the secrets that derail us and ruin others. A phenomenally moving experience (it's so much more than a novel), Clare's debut shows a complex web of relationships that shifts as much as a desert itself--and is just as gorgeous." Caroline Leavitt, author of Cruel Beautiful World and the New York Times Bestsellers Is this Tomorrow and Pictures of You

"When Lilly, rocked by a family secret, agrees to trek through the Australian outback with her newly-discovered father, brother, and niece, the terrain is as remote and unfamiliar as her traveling companions. There in the crowded vehicle, the torment of past relationships pursues her--wanting adventure while wanting safety, feeling cramped and yet never close enough. A poignant and witty story of survival, trust, and awakening." Susan Henderson, author of The Flicker of Old Dreams

"In deft, clear prose that reminds of both Cheryl Strayed and Michael Ondaatje, Janet Clare's debut explores--in riveting, unflinching detail--a woman's search for connection and meaning. In Lilly's journey, with unfamiliar family in unfamiliar territory, we have a protagonist wanting in the ways we are all wanting: to find that thing that will make us complete. There are depths in these characters and I loved every word." Christian Kiefer, author of The Animals
