Due to the authors young age he believed that she had moved to Australia. Theme Theme of the novel is that memories are associated with the places and visiting those places cause those memories to pop up and we start to reminisce. My opinion this novel reveals the true feelings of nostalgia when someone goes back to his past memories and almost relives them. Its the beauty of memories. Sometimes unspoken truths are better than naked reality . Growing old is somehow interesting its like solving a riddle of life using memories as hints.
