about

Peter Carey captures our imagination with a brilliant and unexpected portrait of Sydney.


Bloomsbury is pleased to announce the second title in the phenomenally well-received Writer in the City series-in which some of the world''s finest novelists reveal the secrets of the city they know best. In the midst of the 2000 Olympic games, Australia native Peter Carey returns to Sydney after a seventeen-year absence. Examining the urban landscape as both a tourist and a prodigal son, Carey structures his account around the four elements-Earth, Air, Fire, and Water-insisting on the primacy of nature to this unique Australian cityscape.


As his quixotic account unfolds, Carey looks both inward into his past (as well as Sydney''s own violent history) and outward onto the city''s familiar landmarks and surroundings-the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, the Blue Mountains-achieving just the right alchemy of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water to tell Sydney''s extraordinary story.

Peter Carey is the author of seven highly praised novels, including the 1988 winner of the Booker Prize, Oscar and Lucinda. His latest novel is True History of the Kelly Gang. He lives in New York.
