Peter Carey's astonishing debut novel is a fast-moving extravaganza, both funny and gripping, about a man who, recovering from death, is convinced that he is in hell.
Bliss: the debut novel from twice Booker Prize-winner, Peter Carey, author of Amnesia, Oscar and Lucinda and True History of the Kelly Gang. Beautiful Faber Firsts edition to commemorate Faber's 80th Anniversary.
Peter Carey received the Booker Prize for Oscar and Lucinda and again for True History of the Kelly Gang. His novel, Parrot and Olivier in America, was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and was a finalist for the National Book Award in 2010. His other honours include the Commonwealth Prize and the Miles Franklin Award. Born in Australia, he has lived in New York for twenty years. www.petercareybooks.com
