Praise

Praise for OSCAR AND LUCINDA:

“It is Thomas Wolfe one is reminded of most when reading Peter Carey . . . They share that magnificent vitality, that ebullient delight in character, detail, and language that turn a novel into an important book.” —THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
 
“The stuff of shimmering, transparent fantasy, held together by the struts of nineteenth-century history.” —TIME
 
“A kind of rollercoaster ride . . .The reader emerges . . . gasping, blinking, reshaped in a hundred ways, conscious that the world is never going to look the same again.” —THE WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD
 
Praise for TRUE HISTORY OF THE KELLY GANG:

“A spectacular feat of imagination.” —THE BOSTON GLOBE
 
“Vastly entertaining . . . As if Huck Finn and Shakespeare had joined forces to prettify the legend of Jesse James.” —THE NEW YORK TIMES
 
“A bravura performance . . . Rewards the persistent reader with a powerful emotional experience.” —THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
 
“The ingenuity, empathy, and poetic ear that the novelist brings to his feat of imposture cannot be rated too high.” —John Updike, THE NEW YORKER
