Synopsis

Peter Carey, a world-renowned novelist and Booker Prize winner based in New York, is one of only two writers to have won the Booker prize twice. He is frequently named as Australia's next contender for the Nobel Prize in Literature. In this novel you get everything that you expect from Carey, an inexhaustible imagination, bold narration and vivacious imagery.  This adventure is loosely based on the real-life travels of the 19th- century political thinker Alexis de Tocqueville, who’s Democracy in America, is a classic early work of sociology. It follows two Old World protagonists – one from France, one from England – and sets them down in New York in the mid-19th century. From there you can appreciate where this story is going with a premise that evokes the immigrant experience and delivers unexpected, and often hilarious twists and turns.
