Description
The two-time Man Booker Prize–winning author of True History of the Kelly Gang, Oscar and Lucinda, and My Life as a Fake, expatriate Australian novelist Peter Carey offers this unexpectedly beautiful story of love between a young woman and a little boy. Che is raised in isolated privilege by his New York grandmother. Denied all access to television and the news, and yearning for his famous outlaw parents, who were radical Harvard students in the 60s, Che too becomes an outlaw. Fleeing down subways, abandoning seedy motels at night, he is pitched into a journey that leads him to a hippy commune in the wilds of tropical Queensland, where he begins to confront the truths of his life and learns that nothing is what it seemed.

"[Peter Carey has] created a little boy who is neither too precious nor too wise, a little boy on a sad trip with his eyes wide open, watching everything and everyone around him. He makes you think of your own past life and all you felt when you were a kid being played upon and moved about by the adults of the world. This book is another triumph, among Carey's other wonderful books. The man can write. He seems capable of anything."—Kent Haruf
