To the authorities in pursuit of him, Ned Kelly is a horse thief, bank robber and police-killer. But to his fellow Australians, Kelly is their own Robin Hood. In a dazzling act of ventriloquism, Peter Carey’s Booker Prize-winning novel of adventure and heroism brings the famous bushranger wildly and passionately to life.
Packed with incident, alive with comedy and pathos . . . Contains pretty much everything you could ask of a novel.
Carey is without question the pre-eminent literary voice of post-colonial Australia.
The ingenuity, empathy, and poetic ear that the novelist brings to his feat of imposture cannot be rated too high.
A true wonder . . . This is just amazing writing.
