    Author Information
    Twice winner of the Booker Prize, Peter Carey's most recent novel Parrot and Olivier in America was described by the New Yorker as 'a comic masterpiece' and by the Sunday Times as 'an exhilarating tour-de-force'. It was shortlisted for both the Man Booker Prize and a National Book Award in 2010.
    Review text
    Three new pieces are included in this collection of the stories from Carey's two previous volumes, The Fat Man in History and War Crimes. It is a joy to have such a dizzying selection of his work between two covers: the dangerous ambitions of a respectable lover in 'A Million Dollars Worth of Amphetamines'; the extraterrestrial-nightmare scenario that begins so innocently in 'Exotic Pleasures'; the melancholy surrealism of 'Conversations with Unicorns'. Outlandish, disturbing and sometimes savagely funny. (Kirkus UK)
