True History of the Kelly Gang


By Peter Carey

This story is the song of Australia, and it sings its protest in a voice at once crude and delicate, menacing and heart-wrenching. The author gives us Ned Kelly as orphan, as Oedipus, as horse thief, farmer, bushranger, reformer, bank-robber, police-killer and as his country’s Robin Hood.

I would recommend it, it has new style of grammar unseen in most novels
