We will find out in tonight’s discussions Pageturner’s thoughts on Peter Carey’s latest work Amnesia. Here are some reviews:

“Felix is a brilliant character: witty and paranoid with a Carey-esque backstory…The heights of Amnesia are that glorious Carey way with language” The Saturday Paper.

“Peter Carey is back in Australia with a bang… It’s funny, manic; so charged with energy that each sentence packs a punch – and reminds you that, at 71, Carey remains a wizard with words” Jennifer Byrne, Australian Women’s Weekly.

“A very funny book… Carey at the height of his powers..(He) doesn’t put a word or sentence in the wrong place…Amnesia is the novel for our times.” Mark Rubbo, Readings Monthly.

“The novel is a wild ride…Carey is Australia’s lyrebird master of dialogue, perfectly tuned to every nuance, or upward intonation, of successive generations of Australian speech…Effortlessly lyrical” Morag Fraser, The Age.
