About this book
Narrated by the twin voices of the artist Butcher Bones, and his 'damaged two-hundred- and-twenty-pound brother' Hugh, this novel once again displays Peter Carey's extraordinary flair for language. Ranging from the rural wilds of Australia to Manhattan via Tokyo, it is a brilliant and moving exploration of art, fraud and redemption, and was longlisted for the Booker Prize. Carey is the only author ever to win the Booker twice, and this paperback will have a high profile marketing campaign. 'The best novel I've read all year' "Evening Standard"
Ranging from the rural wilds of Australia to Manhattan via Tokyo, this work presents an exploration of art, fraud, responsibility and redemption. It is narrated by the twin voices of the artist, Butcher Bones, and his 'damaged two-hundred-and-twenty-pound brother', Hugh.
