OSCAR AND LUCINDA is a sweeping, irrepressibly inventive novel set in nineteenth-century England and Australia where the two potential lovers lead parallel lives until chance brings them together on board ship. A narrative tangle of love, religion, gambling, commerce and colonialism culminates in a nightmare expedition - the result of a wager - to transport a glass church across the Australian wilderness. In TRUE HISTORY OF THE KELLY GANG the legendary Australian outlaw Ned Kelly speaks for himself in a voice that is direct, colloquial, theatrical, and utterly magical. To his pursuers he is nothing but a monstrous criminal, but to his own people he is a hero, defying British imperial authority in support of the poor Irish settlers who are its victims. In a dazzling act of ventriloquism, Carey brings the famous bushranger unforgettably to life.

Recensioner i media

"A novel of extraordinary richness, complexity and strength ... it brings the past, in all its difference, bewilderingly into our present. It fills me with a wild, savage envy and no novelist could say fairer than that." -- Angela Carter "There is no greater triumph than fiction which engages with life's tragedy and comedy both, and which acknowledges their inseparability. Oscar and Lucinda accomplishes this. Full of ideas - about religion, about nationhood, about individuality - it is never burdened by them: it is always fixed in the material world, in its endlessly surprising detail." -- Claire Messud * Daily Telegraph *
