Booker Prize-winning author

Peter Carey hilariously conjures up dystopia in his picaresque The Unusual Life of Tristan Smith.

‘My name is Tristan Smith. I was born in Chemin Rouge in Efica – which is to say as much to you, I bet, if I declared I was from the moon.’ Severely afflicted, doomed never to be taller than three foot six, Tristan Smith faces death and danger from the first moment of his energetic and ambitious life. Here, for the first time, is the truth about him, from his birth in the Republic of Efica in the year 371 to the present day. When he goes on trial for multiple offences in Voorstand, a nation of rampaging global dominance, Tristan must plead his case to the very culture that has done for his own. Peter Carey's piercing allegory of imperialism is unmatched for originality and inventiveness.

'Irresistible ... intimate and theatrical ... supple and surprising ... We're in the hands of a master storyteller.'
Carol Shields, author of The Stone Diaries

'Carey has vaulted to the top ranks of writers in the English-speaking world ... Tristan has an appeal that transcends geography.'
