Turbo-charged, hyperkinetic: Peter Carey

Australian cyber-thriller Amnesia (2015, U.S. edition) by Australian-American novelist Peter Carey, who visits the Writers Institute this coming Tuesday 2/3, is reviewed in The Guardian:

"Peter Carey's fiction is turbo-charged, hyperenergetic.... Like many of Carey’s books, Amnesia generates an aura of the fantastical but is completely grounded; it is high-spirited but serious, hectic but never hasty.... a deeply engaging book. It responds to some of the biggest issues of our time, and reminds us that no other contemporary novelist is better able to mix farce with ferocity, or to better effect."
