“Carey can spin a yarn with the best of them…. Illywhacker is a big, garrulous, funny novel…. If you haven’t been to Australia, read Illywhacker. It will give you the feel of it like nothing else I know.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A book of awesome breadth, ambition, and downright narrative joy…. Illywhacker is a triumph.” —Washington Post Book World
