True History of the Kelly Gang by Peter Carey

Peter Carey is no slouch.He has chalked up two Booker wins among many other awards.As any antipodean knows,Ned Kelly is the Australian equivalent of Robin Hood.Sort of.The writing style Carey employs is unique.A little unusual.It took me 15 or 20 pages to get used to it.By page 30 I was well into the swing of it and soon realised this was the only way the tale should be told.And a great tale it is,rollicking through the harsh world of Victoria in the 19th century.P.C is surely one of Australia’s finest.
