Journeys are a recurrent feature of My Father's Moon (1989), Cabin Fever (1990) and The Georges' Wife (1993). Protagonist Vera Wright travels continually by train, bus and bicycle. She voyages half across the world from Britain to Australia and flies from Australia to New York. On foot, she treads a maze of suburban streets, wheeling young children in England and pushing her husband's wheelchair in Australia. Such journeying corresponds both to Vera's progress through life as a social being and her inward development.
