Highly acclaimed comic novel of the relationship between, and the adventures of, a man and a woman in colonial New South Wales.

Peter Carey's Booker Prize winning novel imagines Australia's youth, before its dynamic passions became dangerous habits. It is also a startling and unusual love story. 

Oscar is a young English clergyman who has broken with his past and developed a disturbing talent for gambling. A country girl of singular ambition, Lucinda moves to Sydney, driven by dreams of self-reliance and the building of an industrial Utopia. Together this unlikely pair create and are created by the spectacle of mid-nineteenth century Australia. 

Peter Carey's visionary brilliance, and his capacity to delight and surprise, propel this story to its stunning conclusion.
