Matthew Kneale's "English Passengers" tells the story of an 1857 expedition to Tasmania, in search of the Garden of Eden, whose members - including a vicar and a sinister racial theorist - don't realise they are actually aboard a manx smuggling ship. Told by a score of different characters and packed with drama, comedy and punch, "English Passengers" is a major work of the imagination.
