Product Synopsis

In a dazzling act of ventriloquism, Peter Carey gives Ned Kelly a voice so wild, passionate and original that it is impossible not to believe that the famous bushranger himself is speaking from beyond the grave. True History of the Kelly Gang is the song of Australia, and it sings its protest in a voice at once crude and delicate, menacing and heart-wrenching. Carey gives us Ned Kelly as orphan, as Oedipus, as horse thief, farmer, bushranger, reformer, bank-robber, police-killer and, finally, as his country's beloved Robin Hood.

Staff Choice

I groaned inside when my book club announced this as a recent monthly selection. After all, I'm the sort of person who wastes his time correcting grammatical errors in Wikipedia entries, and the narrative in this 2001 Booker Prize winner is nothing but unparsed sentences and endless instances of "he was" and "I were". But once I got over my pedanticism, I found myself fairly blown away by this tale of Australia's Robin Hood. Carey's narrative creates a voice for Ned Kelly (and a world around him) that is utterly convincing -- it wasn't until reading about Ned Kelly later (on Wikipedia, of course) that I was reminded that the book is actually a work of fiction, albeit one based on true events. - Adam
