Quotes & Awards

  • “A twisting, thriller-ish tale…A sharp ripost to those who say fiction can’t cope with the cyber age…Intriguing.”

    Times (London)

  • “A tale of betrayal, paranoia and conspiracy…Amnesia is at once a bold account of Australia’s uncomfortable and slippery relationship with the United States and an ambitious meditation on the writer’s uncomfortable and slippery relationship with facts and their audience…A terrific book.”

    Independent (UK)

  • “Amnesia is exhilaratingly suffused with Carey’s wild prodigality of invention…Amnesia glitters with nervy verbal inventiveness and pungent characterization. Carey conjures the longings and anxieties of his wayward teenaged idealists with the same pathos and precision with which he depicts the pains and disillusions of middle age.”

    Evening Standard (London)

  • “[This] lively 13th novel from the Australian magus Peter Carey will leave the mind reeling. It is tremendous fun, a satiric burlesque as fast as a speeding car…seething with benign rage and as black as reality…The narrative energy of Amnesia is impressive…[It] contains some of the sharpest characterization Carey has written…blunt and funny, brave and outspoken.”

    Irish Times

  • A New York Times Editor’s Choice
