Peter Carey

Books by Peter Carey

Peter Philip Carey is an award-winning Australian novelist. He has twice won the Booker Prize with Oscar and Lucinda and True History of the Kelly Gang.

Peter Carey loves weird stories and he is not a truth-teller. He just spins on into lies and fantasy. In Oscar and Lucinda he has marvellous description of a glass church floating down a river. So for me it’s the way he allows his imagination to play and to fill the space. He is also a very elegant writer.
