Transit Lounge is excited to introduce a major new novel by internationally acclaimed Australian author Bem Le Hunte. Elephants with Headlights will be released 1 March 2020. And what a glorious novel it is. The characters in the novel have such strong individual voices that the reader will be sad leave them behind. Set in India and Northern New South Wales, it is a novel about love, death and purpose in life that speaks to the meaning that the world’s most abiding stories have always been tasked to address. Bem Le Hunte has dedicated it ‘to the women of the world—the eternal flame of the sacred feminine, to the transformational hopes of our mothers, and to my mother, who inspired in me the love of literature.’ The novel is both literary and hugely entertaining.
‘Bem Le Hunte is quite simply, a wonderful novelist.’
