Four are set in Australia, three in the United States, three in India and one in Buddhist mythology. The stories vary in range as widely as they do in space: from the tragi-comic tensions between a son and his parents in a neighborhood travel agency in Sydney to an improbable love affair between a Seychelles Creole and a German divorcee in Delhi.

In New York, a misplaced love for their son destroys his parents. Two very different Indian women rescue themselves from the tyranny of their husbands. Lily runs and runs to escape from a lover in mid-life crisis. At the Dussehra festival in Delhi, an Australian wanderer teaches a professor of sociology the difference between power and celebrity.

At the time of the Vietnam war, a go-go dancer in Sydney schemes and finally sacrifices to free herself from the burden of her ancestry. On his return to China from the holy sites in India, an Abbot discovers the meaning of Buddhas tooth and arrives at the end of his pilgrimage. At an American university, Istvan loses another round in his ongoing war with the Jesuits. An Australian academic tries to understand why he searches for a lost jacket although the jacket itself means nothing to him. A summer soldier and sunshine patriot in the United States Army discovers sandbagging and the Army Game.
