Description
Before Parrot and Olivier in America and My Life as a Fake, before True History of the Kelly Gang (winner of the 2001 Booker Prize), Jack Maggs (1998 Commonwealth Writers Prize), and Oscar and Lucinda (1988 Booker Prize), Peter Carey's astonishing first novel Bliss appeared in 1981. A rollicking read, both funny and gripping, it is the story of Harry Joy, a man who was clinically dead for nine minutes and, now that he is revived, is convinced that he is in Hell. As in Carey's stories and some of his later novels, he manages to create a brilliant but totally believable fusion of ordinary experience with the crazier fantasies of the mind, resulting in a love story about a man who misunderstands the world so totally that he almost gets it right.
