Shoot, I just read Unbearable Lightness by Portia de Rossi and thought I could put it down for Australia, unfortunately the bigger part of the book plays in the US...

Lahni | 290 comments I may be wrong but I don't think it has to be where the majority of the book takes place. I think the rules state that a "significant" part of the book must take place there.

Diane  | 464 comments Corinna, Lahni is right. You can claim Unbearable Lightness as Australia.
