Winner of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize and the Miles Franklin Award, Peter Carey's Jack Maggs is dazzlingly entertaining.

A thrilling story of mesmerism and possession, of dangerous bargains and illicit love. London, 1837. Jack Maggs, raised and deported as a criminal, has returned from Australia in secret and at great risk. What does he want after all these years, and why is he so interested in the comings and goings at a plush townhouse in Great Queen Street? And why is Jack himself an object of such interest to Tobias Oates, celebrated author, amateur hypnotist and fellow burglar – in this case of people’s minds, of their histories and inner phantoms?

'A profound exploration of the intertwinings of fiction and life ... a ravishing book.'
The Australian

'A work of extraordinary, inventive energy, hazarding territory where few writers dare to go.'
The Age

'Wildly entertaining ... Clever, amusing, absorbing ... with dark, succulent, dense, pungent, knobbly, inscrutable characters every one of whom might have come from a Dickens novel.'
New York Review of Books
