Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A foundling trained in the art of thievery, Jack Maggs was betrayed and deported to Australia for life. But now, having reversed his fortunes, he seeks to fulfill his innermost desire. Returning to London under threat of execution, he's quickly embroiled in various entanglements among a handful of characters — each with their own secrets. And as their various schemes converge, the captivating figure at the epicentre is Maggs himself, at once frightening, mystifying, and utterly compelling.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

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 town-house in Great Queen Street?

Synopsis:

This tale of life in the criminal underworld of Australia and England was a surprise omission from the 1997 Booker Prize short-list. The paperback edition follows the release of a film version of "Oscar And Lucinda", Carey's previous Booker Prize-winning novel, which is to star Ralph Fiennes. "Carey's prose, as ever, is burnished to a high shine" Erica Wagner, "The Times".
